Leaving Hope Behind

Hope is a gift from God (and what a precious gift it is!), but the biggest gift of all will be the day when we no longer need for it. We will leave hope behind and move forward into eternity to recognize the glorious fulfillment of all our earthly hopes — and no suffering here can compare to the glory that will be revealed in us.


"Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us." Romans 8:3-5

Wait on the Lord: Living in the Waiting

Waiting on the Lord should be an active decision of putting our trust in Him. In the waiting, then, we simply continue to live. We continue to create. We continue to love. We continue to learn and grow and do.


"But those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength. They will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not be weary, they will walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31

Abiding in Jesus Brings True Life

Remember that all of us, even people who are not chronically ill, are truly dependent on God for everything — and abiding in Him is the secret to producing fruit.


"I am the vine; you are the branches. If you abide in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5
