GOD's Word is REAL -- Sharing Scripture (Week 2) on HOPE

HE’s the HOPE that holds me, and the STRONGHOLD to shelter me, The only GOD for me, and my great confidence.” Psalm 91:2

I had planned to "DIG into GOD's WORD" all throughout the month of August and I failed to do so.  Life got in the way of LIFE and I allowed satan to spread his lies and shatter my hope.  That's a tough one to admit.  My son called me a hypocrite today, and I guess the truth is that he's correct.  So many times the circumstances of my every day beat me up and drain my confidence in HIM.  I KNOW that GOD loves me.  I KNOW that HE cares about me.  I KNOW that I am HIS.  But more often than not, I take the valleys of this world to heart and I am reminded of my past and I feel like a failure and the troubles around me press in on all sides to the point where I simply forget to breathe.

I forget that HE is my REFUGE..
I forget that HE is my FORTRESS.
I forget that HE is my ROCK.
I forget that HE is my SHELTER.
I forget.

I forget that HE is always available and I forget to crawl right up into HIS lap for comfort.
I forget that my HOPE is found in HIM.

And now, I dig in.  I am planting my feet and reclaiming my HOPE.  And maybe, just maybe, I'll be less of a hypocrite and more authentic.  Maybe, just maybe, my HOPE will be restored.

Psalm 39:7 says "And so, LORD, where do I put my HOPE? My only HOPE is in YOU."

Psalm 62:5 says "Let all that I am wait quietly before GOD, for my HOPE is in HIM."

Jeremiah 29:11 says  "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you HOPE and a future."

Where do you put your HOPE?  What Scriptures remind you to cling to HIM with all HOPE?
I'd love to hear from you as I wait quietly before the LORD.

This Day Has Great Potential
Pin It Now!


  1. I'm reading 1; 2; 3 John with a nine study group. Love it! Lots of harsh words spoken in perfect love. It's amazing how Good can convict my heart of sin and still show his love for me!

  2. I wondered what happened to this link-up. :-) Glad you're back and refocusing on your hope.

  3. Here is the Scripture and a Snapshot post I did with the theme of hope:


Thanks for stopping by and sharing your heart with me!
