Thankful Thursday

Psalm 39:7 "But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you."

Psalm 62:5 "Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him."

Hebrews 10:23 "Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful."

I am so thankful for God's Word.

I am so thankful that it is the living, breathing voice of God!

I am so thankful it is where we can find real hope. When circumstances of this world are less than sure, His Word provides the peace that passeth all understanding and offers hope and promise!

I am so thankful for these verses today. I have taken my eyes off the events of the week and placing them on His sure foundation. It is all I know to do:

Psalm 119:116 "Sustain me according to your promise, and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed."

Psalm 147:11 "the LORD delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love."

Psalm 119:114 "You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word."

Isaiah 40:31 "but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Romans 4:18 "Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, "So shall your offspring be."

Romans 5:5 "And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us."

Romans 12:12 "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer."

Romans 15:13 "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."

I am so thankful that He turns our sorrow into joy!

"Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me; O LORD, be my help."
You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever." Psalm 30: 10-12

Hm, this is just like the Lord...I have been thinking about hope over the last several days...now I am stopping here and you have all the 'hope passages' I was looking for...

You know, having His word close to us and in our hearts is the best thing we can have :)

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this past week.
