31 Days of Hope - October 22

The Lord values those who fear Him, those who put their hope in His faithful love.
Psalm 147:11
When we put our HOPE in the Lord, when we have awe of Him, He values us. He loves all His children, but those of us who give our lives to Him, hold a special value. When we trust Him, He is able to work in our lives. When we have HOPE in Him, we are opening our heart to allow Him to work in our life and do what is best for us. 

It may not always look the way we want it to look. God works in our lives in ways that will bless us. His concern is our relationship with Him. As we are going through a difficult situation or have a stronghold in our life we want to change, we need to try and remember to put Him first. I'm not going to lie and tell you this is easy. Personally, when I have had my hard days, I've wanted to crawl into a ball and sleep. Sleep has always been my first choice of escape. For you, it may be something different, but can I encourage us both to make our first choice Jesus? 

Do something easy; meditate on a favorite Scripture and pray over it. I know I've shared the one that gave me so much HOPE was Psalms 91:4. 

(This is a special gift I received from a friend)

I would read it over and over until I had it memorized. I would pray this Scripture and believe that God was covering me. It comforted me to imagine Him protecting me from all the things that frightened me. As you are able to do more, do more. Memorize and meditate on more Scriptures, follow a plan to read through your Bible and above all else, pray! 

God give us so much HOPE - He loves us with more love than anyone else ever has. Trust in Him as you go through your difficult time and sit back and watch Him work miracles in your life!

Blessings - Julie
