Daily in Your Presence - May 13

Day 134


While we wait for the blessed hope --
the glorious appearing of
our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Titus 2:13James 1:17


My child, I know there are times when hope seems like a mirage in the desert - appearing one minute, fading the next. But remember I am your blessed hope. When you put all your expectations in Me, you will never be disappointed. As My child, your hope is not built upon earthly plans that may fail, but in eternal values that last forever. Let Me fill you with joyful hope today - enough to last for all your tomorrows.

Lord, You build a bridge of hope where there is no understanding. You then carefully escort me to where my heart can find renewal for the journey ahead. When life disappoints, when dreams diminish, and when friends disappear, You, Lord, remain my blessed hope.


Hope-filled hearts come from trust-filed lives.
