My Favorite Quotes

All God’s plans have the mark of the cross on them, and all His plans have death to self in them…. But men’s plans ignore the offence of the cross or despise it. Men’s plans have no profound, stern or self-immolating denial in them. Their gain is of the world.   E. M. Bounds

Blessings from above

 Blessings from above 

           Sunshine, sunshine beaming down, warming the seeds, planted in the ground. Rain drops, rain drops bouncing on the road, bringing much needed moisture, to the seeds that are sowed. Moon beams, moon beams giving soft light, to show us natures beauty at night. Stars, stars twinkling far above, reminds me of diamonds, a symbol of love. God’s Son sent from above, bringing grace and love; giving us salvation from sin, if we open our hearts and invite Him to come in.

My Observations [ HOPE according to the Bible ]

168214_489156046043_612176043_6589453_3621087_n  Hope—- A looking forward to with expectation.

Psalm 39:7 (King James Version)

 7And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.

1 Peter 1:21 (King James Version)

 21Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.  According to these two Scripture verses our Hope is in God.

  Acts 26:6,7; 1 Timothy 1:1—  We have Hope  in the Promises of God.

  Psalm 33:18–Behold the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy.   We have  Hope because of the mercy of God.

  Galatians 5:5—- For we through the  Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.  In this verse we see two things that provide hope for the believers of Christ. Hope through the Holy Spirit and Hope by our faith.

  Hope is putting faith to work when doubting would be easier.  ~Author Unknown
