Hope

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Romans 15:13 NIV

As you look to the future today don’t look to the past to determine its possibilities.

Don’t look around to what is going on around you to determine how you feel about it. 

Look to the God of hope who surrounds you with His love.

Look to the God of love who has broken the power of sin on the cross.

Look to Jesus who will fill you with all joy and peace as you trust Him.

Regardless of what is going on around you, His love is for you.

Jesus died and rose again so that your hope would not lie in the power of man but in the power of God.

May you live in the fullness of His love today, tomorrow and every day after.

In Awe

“So I kneel humbly in awe before the Father of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, the perfect Father of every father and child in heaven and on the earth.”

-Ephesians 3:14-15, The Passion Translation

When you realize how much He loves you.

When you receive the truth that He knows you, loves you and has chosen you.

When you know that nothing separates you from Him, not even your own sin.

When you enter into His arms and allow Him to embrace you.

You can’t help but fall to your knees in awe.

Who is God?

The perfect Father of every father and child in heaven and on earth.

Who are you?

His beloved child, invited into an eternal relationship with Him beginning now.

Because of Jesus

Because of Jesus nothing can separate you from the love of your Heavenly Father.

And God loves you beyond measure.

You are loved today, tomorrow and will be loved every day until your death and then beyond into eternity.

God demonstrated this love for you through Jesus and His sacrifice for you on the cross.

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭5:8‬ ‭NIV‬‬

You Are Loved.

Nothing can separate you from it.

Not fear.

Not shame.

Not worry.

Not circumstances.

Not finances.

Not the rules of men.

Because of Jesus you can live in the glorious freedom of being a cherished child of God.

Nothing to fear and nothing to prove.

Because of Jesus you can experience your life like a child who feels safe and secure: explore, enjoy and play.

So explore.

Enjoy.

Play.

Because of Jesus, you can live loved today.
