Hope…Desire or Trust? I’m

“I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭15:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

I found a couple of definitions for the word HOPE.

1. A desire for a certain thing to happen.

2. A feeling of trust.

The first one can still involve worry and fear because of uncertainty or the unknown. The second brings in peace and joy. An assurance. It allows you to let go or move forward with confidence.

In order to trust someone, you need to have spent time with them. You know their reputation. They have come through for you before. They are good to their word.

Right now that CONFIDENT HOPE is available for you and me in Christ. We trust whom we believe. And we believe whom/what we give our time to. Today spend time in the Word and with others who have testimonies of God coming through in challenging times.

“I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭15:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

I am determined to live a life that is a calling beyond myself. For too many years I lived out the lies I believed to be true about who I was...or wasn't. Regardless, I was on the outside what I believed on the inside. Who told you that? More than anything, I want you to believe that you are valuable and have so much to offer to the world around you. I know you are here to do great things.
