Called to Hope

I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Through Jesus, we are called to Hope…

…not because of who we are, but Whose we are.

…not because of what we can do, but what God can do.

…not because of what we can see, but because of all that He sees.

…not because of how we try to love, but because of God’s ultimate love.

…not because of what we think we know, but because of God’s unlimited knowledge.

…not because of trust in ourselves, but because of our trust in Him.

We are called to find our Hope in Him…not to look for it in the world and in those around us. {Tweet this}

What would our days look like if we truly overflowed with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit?

In Christ,
Laura

  2. Awesome, Laura! It's all about Him!

    I love what you said: "We are called to find our Hope in Him…not to look for it in the world and in those around us." We are so prone to do just that, instead of looking to Him ...

  5. The simple reminder that Romans 15 give us... Hope is a calling we are supposed to be comfortable to step into. I love this, Laura. Thank you for the powerful dose of inspiration.
    Blessings!
