Thankful Thursday

Today Iris has chose HOPE for the theme.

There are a lot of verses in the bible about hope.

What would happen if a person had no hope at all?? I know there are people in this world without hope. That makes me sad to think of that. Without hope, what do we have??

I have hope in Christ. My hope is in Christ.

Pray for those with no hope. It seems so simple, and it is, but I know it helps.

Here is one definition of hope:

intransitive verb 1 : to cherish a desire with anticipation
2 archaic : trust

1 : to desire with expectation of obtainment
2 : to expect with confidence : trust

Psalm 31:24 (New King James Version)

24 Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart,
All you who hope in the LORD.

Romans 8:24 (New King James Version)

24 For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees?

1 Corinthians 13:13 (New King James Version)

13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
