God always gives you all the grace you need. So you will only have to suffer for a little while. Then God himself will build you up again. He will make you strong and steady. And he has chosen you to share in his eternal glory because you belong to Christ. 1 Peter 5:10 NIRV

We often hear people say “keep the faith”, when we face circumstances that are difficult. In times of trouble, we sometimes forget God IS with us. We worry about what’s to come and allow ourselves to doubt. But, the human side of weakness humbles us for Jesus. And, as we’re held in His arms of HOPE, strength is made stronger than before.

We learn a lot about ourselves, when Jesus asks us to COPE with HOPE. The Bible says, "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6 brings HOPE to those who are reminded God knows the plans He has for our days. 

God will provide the wisdom we need. In moments of surrender, we will see how it feels to be nurtured in His care. He will ready us for what’s to come, but not until faith has had a chance to grow. He will map out our days and lay a trail for us to follow. 

God knows the longing of our hearts and knows our EVERY single. We were created us for His great purpose. He will guide and provide. We must patiently wait and follow Jesus. He will grow our faith and help us remember we are NOT alone. We must be still, seek Him with all of our hearts and “never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.” 

Dear God, Thank you for the power of Your love. Thank you for Jesus. We will faithfully follow all the days of our lives and seek You with all of our hearts. Fill us with HOPE as we’re held in Your arms of strength and allow us to experience how it feels to be cradled in care. Thank you for the plans You have for the future. Thank you for helping us understand what it means to be faithful. Amen
