The New Year always brings us a sense of hope, but most times it is a wish and thought that things will go the way you want them to go in the New Year. We hope things will go better than they did last year, make and save more money, lose weight, and of course read the Bible in a year among many other things. I truly believe when looking at a New Year, it is important to always have God's perspective on Hope according to His word. I looked to the Bible to see what God says in His word about Hope and this is what I found.
but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles;they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
and in his word I hope;
We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.
The bottom line is for the New Year I choose to do what the word says and wait patiently on the Lord, trust in God's word, and continue to put all my hope continually in Him.
I created this design a while ago but just tweaked it recently and wasn't going to put it out because I didn't think people would like it. But one of my favorite bloggers Brittany over at the blog Ordinarilyextraordinarymom wrote about Hope and I then knew I had to write and about it and put out the design. Having an online store is difficult especially when you feel like you are competing with others who do the same thing. But I am learning each day to keep creating, keep trusting, keep waiting patiently, and continue putting all my HOPE in the Lord. I hope you all like the new design.
