Hope

I am fortunate to be involved with some amazing ladies in a new study group. It is refreshing for me 1) because I get to hang out with the "bible study chicks" and 2) because I am child-less at our meetings! This week has been a challenge for me to dig in to the content of our little book, it seemed a little monotonous - until today!

I have been reflecting on the instability of life. People these days, more than ever, seem to be somewhat pessimistic and almost fatalist in their thinking. It was so inspiriting to be reminded of the hope I have and the hope that Abraham had in the face of insurmountable circumstances.

These are just a few of the hope-filled words (from Romans 4) I read today:

"In hope against hope he believed..."

"Without becoming weak in faith he contemplated..."

"...with respect to the promise of God, he did not waver in unbelief, but grew strong in faith, giving glory to God and being fully assured that what God had promised, He was able also to perform."


So be encouraged sweet reader that He is able.
