|25 Days of God Given Gifts|
HOPE is defined as: To look forward to with confidence or expectation. It’s also one of the most common inspirational words we see.
It’s lettered on rocks, featured in wall art, and I've even seen a face cream called Hope. Beyond the commonness, it’s a word people cling to in chronic pain; cancer; desperate financial circumstances, relationship problems, and the countless other tragedies that come into our lives. I heard in the news, a victimized woman held captive said – “I never let hope disappear”.
For those who trust in Jesus, our ultimate hope is not in this present life, but in the world unseen, our final destination of Heaven. If we choose to place our hope in the God of Hope, He will give us the strength to get through it, no matter our situation.
The church bells ring on Christmas to announce God’s gift to humanity and the HOPE He brought to us in the form of the baby in the Bethlehem manger.
May you and your family be blessed by that Gift throughout this Christmas season and in the coming year.
