when hope falls

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13

We had almost finished decorating the CHRISTmas, when suddenly hope fell.  The string gave way and the hope angel hit the floor.  Besides the broken loop, hope was unscathed, and a new loop secured it back to the tree.  Only her beauty reflected on the tree... not her fall.

Isn't hope like that for us too?  During trials, disappointments and hardships sometimes our hope wavers or falls into a deep pit. But Christ does not leave us there. He scoops us up and reconnects our heart/loop to Him, securely putting us close by His side.  His loving Hands shows up in the form of a friend, a song, His Word, a prayer. The source is not important, but His magnificent Presence is. And others come to see and know Him as they witness His glory through us.

How is your loop?  Is it holding tight or a bit loose?  Rest in knowing God is watching, waiting and willing to do what is needed to strengthen our faith in His Mighty Power. Oh, what a Mighty Foundation is our God.

Hang in there. You are looking good; God will make sure of that.

have a JOY-filled day!
