This week is week 5 in the Hope for Hurting Hearts series; click here for one-stop shopping for all the posts in this series. While the series was originally announced as 5 weeks, next Monday I have an awesome surprise for you! You won’t want to miss it, so stay tuned! But this week my heart’s desire is to point you to the Source of Hope- God and His Word.
The very best way I’ve found to renew hope when hope seems gone is to focus on what God’s Word says.
When I place my hope in things, I get distracted.
When I place my hope in people, I feel disappointed.
When I place my hope in my own knowledge or strength, I am devastated.
But when I place my hope in Christ, I experience deliverance.
“On Christ the solid rock I stand; all other ground is sinking sand.”
May you find hope in God’s Word today!
