“This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope.

Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed.

Because His compassions fail not, they are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.

‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘Therefore I hope in Him!’

The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him.

It is good that one should hope and wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.  It is good for man to bear the yoke in his youth.”

Lamentations 3:21-27

LIVING ETERNAL HOPE

 ‘Where does your hope lie?  Does hope awaken in you with the morning sun and arise with you during your day?  Or do you dread the coming day regretting the thought of another day of mediocrity.

Hope has to be attached to the eternal because life changes and can do so in a blink of an eye.  Our security, our health, our relationships are fleeting.  We live and then we die…this is inevitable.

Sorry for being such a Debbie Downer, I’m only really stating the obvious but what most people tend not to want to think about. 

The good news is that Jesus is our eternal hope and when you choose to follow Him, eternity security begins immediately.  Because He rose from the dead and sits forever at the Father’s right hand, we can rest, assured of life beyond the temporal. 

We all need hope.  Death comes quickly when there is no hope and Life is abundant when we know hope, the hope of Jesus.’ DF
