"Whispering Hope"













Whispers of God's hope are fluttering around in my mind this beautiful, cold February day. As I contemplate my own life dilemma's, as well as those of friends and family I am reminded of God's provision in word. Come...travel through the scriptures with me.

"Where then is my hope? Can anyone find it?" Job 17:15

I don't know about you, but there are times in my life when I can relate to Job's words: "where is my hope?" Sometimes I feel a bit like I have lost it or maybe my hope ran feverishly away from my wandering mind and spirit.

"And so, Lord, where do I put my hope? My only hope is in you." Psalm 39:7

Ah, my hope did not run away. Where did I put it? Great question!! Many times I put my hope in the wrong place(s). Thankfully, God nudges me, sometimes gently and sometimes with a great big push or shove. He is faithful to draw me back to His ever faithful word.

Hope is NEVER lost...only a whisper away!

Hoping in "our Heavenly Father,"

I didn't know what to blog about today. Until I was reviewing my old journal and came across 1Kings19:11-12-"where the Lord was not in the earthquake nor fire but there was the sound of a gentle whisper..."I stopped and checked out ur blog real quick and was just amazed you just wrote about "whispers of hope from God." Your post is inspiring [glory to God!] and I pray that we don't miss finding Him in the gentle whispers that come from "humbled hearts". God bless sister.
