~Without wavering, let us hold tightly to the hope we say we have, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.~ Hebrews 10:23 NLT

Despite God's promises, despite Christ's love, and despite our countless blessings,
we frail human beings can still lose hope from time to time.

When we do, we need the encouragement of Christian friends, the life-changing power of prayer, and the healing truth of God's Holy Word.

If you find yourself falling into the spiritual traps of worry and discouragement, seek the healing touch of Jesus and the encouraging words of fellow Christians.

And remember the words of our Savior:

"These things I have spoken unto ye, that in me ye might have peace.
In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world" (John 16:33 KJV).

This world can be a place of trials and tribulations, but as believers, we are secure.

God has promised us peace, joy, and eternal life.

And, of course, God keeps His promises today, tomorrow and forever.

~Hope is the desire and the ability to move forward.~ Emile Barnes

When I read this this morning I thought of you my friend.

God Bless all my Spark Friends today!
Have a wonderful Hope filled day!

    So true. Well said and needed in today's world. My sister's pastor said once that discouragement is the work of the devil. I had never thought of it that way, thinking we are the author of most of our negative feelings. I can see how discouragement is used against us. I am encouraged by how often our Lord tells us to be strong and courageous, that He will go with us always. Rejoice in the Lord always. Love those verses.
