Romans 15:13 
“May the GOD of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT.”

GOD is the only source of true hope, joy, and peace.  He fills believers with joy and peace as they trust in Him, and the amount of joy and peace experienced is directly correlated to how much one trusts GOD. The LORD keeps in peace, perfect peace, those whose minds are stayed on Him. And the peace He gives is a peace that transcends all understanding. "Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness." "We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope." - Martin Luther King, Jr. "Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future."
As believers, we’re “Looking for that Blessed Hope, and the Glorious Appearing of the Great GOD, and our Saviour JESUS CHRIST.”

FATHER GOD, we praise You for the hope that is found in You. For all who know You, we do not live in despair. We know there is always a light at the end of the tunnel no matter how dark it seems.  O LORD, when You graciously give me good things, You do so with abundance. You are the GOD of all riches and glory and You freely give hope, joy, and peace above all that I can ask for or even comprehend. In CHRIST You have given me everything I can ever need for life and for godliness. Today, my desire is to honor and please You for your unfailing love that You’ve fully expressed to us through Your Son, JESUS. May You be glorified now and forevermore. 

Our Hope Is In CHRIST,
Pastor Wally & Sister Mattie
