If there is ONE thing in my soul that needs to be worked on each day, it is this:

hope in God...

Hoping in God sustains us.

Hoping in God gives us joy and peace and contentment.

Hoping in God is our security.

Hoping in God gives us purpose. 

Hoping in God is ours in Jesus. 

Yet...I can at least speak for myself here...So often we worry (with or without God), question, fret, and a whole slew of other things that leave us as ships ready to be tossed by whatever wave happens to come our way next. 

I went to write out a verse in Lamentations about the mercies of God being new every morning. As I copied it down, I decided to read the verses around it. And that's when my mind turned right back to that familiar place: 

hope in God...

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
His mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is Your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“therefore I will hope in Him.”
Lamentations 3:22-24

 The steadfast love is with us, His mercy is always new, He is faithful, He is our portion...We have so many reasons to hope and when we have come to the end, to hope some more. 

Hope in God...You won't be disappointed!
