This week for our family devotions we are talking about hope. Hope is believing in something expected or that something will come to pass.
Lamentations 3:25-26 says “The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.”
Today there is so much turmoil and chaos in the world that it is hard to hold on to that hope. Some days when I look around it is hard for me to see hope, to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Everywhere I turn marriages are failing and families are falling apart. Children are dying of cancer and accidents are claiming lives. Obscene language and acts of violence are all around us. People are losing their jobs and struggling to support their families. When you listen to the news there is seldom an encouraging word.
My heart aches for those who do not have the hope that we as Christians have. My hope lies in Jesus Christ
the Giver of life. It is only when I daily come to Him that I can look past all the sorrow in this world and find true hope and joy.
It is so easy to let the troubles of this world discourage us, but have hope for joy abounds in the Glory land.
