My Hope Comes From Him — 13 Comments

  1. Hi Janis

    I have and do struggle with Hope and Faith, I need to be constantly reminded to look to the Lord and His Word and not circumstances.

    Take Care and Many Blessings – Nita

  2. Oh I was wondering how your youngest son was doing. So good to read your blessings list. And yes Janis, I agree that our hope must be in the Lord. I’ve had too many things or people let me down over the years. We can’t expect to be fulfilled in anything or anyone but our Lord. I loved your post!

    Blessings and love,

  3. Hi Janis…
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment!
    Your post today describes RIGHT where I am 🙂

  4. It’s sometimes a hard lesson to learn…. But YES our Hope is in the Lord!! So great to “meet” you here! Thanks for linking up. Your photo is beautiful. And I love your blessings list!!!

  5. Blessings Janis,
    I used to struggle as you describe in your post. I used to hope in all things and when things start falling apart, I realize my hope was not in Him and now I know it has to be…there is no option.


  6. In answer to your question, I have found hope by looking steadily into God’s Word, and choosing to believe His changeless Truth.

    I look at His character, and not my circumstances – and choose to believe that He loves me, and He is perfectly good.

    He is the HOPE that steadies and sustains me through the stormiest weather in my life.


  7. HOPE was my word for the year a couple of years back. This year’s is TRUST. Love your list, especially the last one. Two and a half months ago, I went through some intense forgiveness towards someone. I haven’t had one migraine or fibromyalgia episode since. I was having them once or twice a week! Praise God!

  8. Hi dear Janis
    I linked after you at Morning Moments and am glad to meet you! This is my first visit to your blog and I love the way you compare earthly hope with autumn leaves being stripped away by the wind. Yes, dear one, that is what happens when the wind of adversity strips our hearts off the hope in earthly things.
    Much love XX
