I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13 NLT

Life provides moments to welcome joy and recognize when it’s placed in our hearts. But, fear often consumes our thoughts and robs us of our calm. 

Christ pours peace exactly where we need it. He whispers, “I am here” and leads us to a prayer of praise. When we’re in the midst of a struggle, He reminds us to hold on tight, so we will find HOPE in the love of His faithfulness and welcome strength while we're held. 

God has a plan for our days. We won’t always understand the timing of His will or recognize how He will save us. But, He will teach us to faithfully trust. His joy will be complete, even in the midst of our circumstances. And, when we have been guided by grace, He will provide HOPE for those who find calm in the Spirit of His strength. 

Christ will carry us. He will set our feet on solid ground and help us remember to be faithful. In moments of great purpose, we will discover JOY. God will remind us why He will handle ALL things. And, we WILL remember why PEACE will come, if we gratefully learn to praise and trust. 

Dear God, Thank you for your everlasting love. Only You are mighty enough to help us find needed JOY. Forgive us when we forget to trust in the power of Your will and open our hearts to be rescued. We will allow peace to lead us to a place of calm and never, ever forget why HOPE is found in YOU. Amen
