Grateful for Gods Hope

When I was younger and I thought I was wise, I thought when I needed to feel hopeful or peaceful, I needed to conjure it up. I thought I could create it from within me.

The older I get, I realize that everything is of God, from God, and in God.

I came to believe that when I turn to God and open my heart, whatever I need will be there. I put my HOPE in God. Whatever I need is found in God. It’s God’s HOPE.

The Apostle Paul said it best in Ephesians 1:7-10 (The Message) “Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It’s God’s gift from start to finish! We don’t play the major role. If we did, we’d probably go around bragging that we’d done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.”

So, God is our hope for everything.

I’m grateful all I have to do is lean in…

In God, Deborah with God
