Hope in God

Why are you cast down, O my soul?
And why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him
For the help of His countenance....
Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls;
All Your waves and billows have gone over me.
The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the day time,
And in the night His song shall be with me -
A prayer to the God of my life.

Psalm 42:5, 7-8

All you who put your hope in the Lord - be strong and brave.
Psalm 31:24

Happy are those who are helped by the God of Jacob.
Their hope is in the Lord their God.
He made heaven and earth,
The sea and everything in it.
He remains loyal forever.
Psalm 146:5-6

We all need hope.
Life takes us away from hope.
The world chokes out our hope.
Thankfully, we have hope in Somone who is:
In control of our life
And defeats the world!
He is the maker of heaven and earth!
He is the all-powerful God.
That is who we hope in.
Amazing.
Reassuring.
Comforting.
Wonderful.

O Lord, I hope in You today.  Let me stay close to You.  Make Your presence known to me to today, so that I may not dispair - but have hope!

Have hope, O my soul!
Hope in God.
