Cultivating Hope

hopeEveryone has trying times and discouraging days.  But we don’t have to stay there if we have hope.  This is more than an emotion, hope is a steady confidence.  For me, my hope comes from God; for others, it comes when the situation starts to look up.  (Personally, I can’t always wait that long-!)

So here are several encouraging Scripture verses about hope.  May they lift you up today.  Have a great weekend!

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

 

Psalm 10:17

LORD, you know the hopes of the helpless. Surely you will hear their cries and comfort them.Hands holding sapling in soil

 

Psalm 33:18

Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love …

 

Psalm 34:18

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.

Psalm 94:19

Proverbs 18:10

Isaiah 40:31

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; sun in handsthey shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

 

Isaiah 43:2

When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.

 

Lamentations 3:22-24

The unfailing love of the LORD never ends! By his mercies we have been kept from complete destruction. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each day. I say to myself, “The LORD is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!”
