Finding Hope, Not Hope - So, For Your Soul
Finding Hope, Not Hope - So, For Your Soul 

Believe in God



 " Do not let your heart be troubled;

believe in God,

believe also in Me."

John 14:1






Dear Christian, don't let your mind

and heart rush into the "what if's"

of troubled thinking.

Search the Scriptures

for specific promises that give you comfort.

Trust in and rely on those promises,

especially when your mind wanders away from

"Whatever  is true, whatever is honorable,whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute,

if there is any excellence,

and if anything worthy of praise,

dwell on these things."

(Philippians 4:8).


If you trust God even when you are sad,

I believe you will begin to rejoice in Him after a while.


Doubt breeds worry, and so does stress. 

Confidence creates joy.

If you trust in God, trust what He has said in His Word

whether you feel like it or not.



"Father, thank you that your Word says: 


Your anger is but for a moment,

Your favor is for a lifetime;

Weeping may last for the night,

but a shout of joy

comes in the morning" 

(Psalm 30:5).  


"The hope of the righteous

shall be gladness"

(Proverbs 10:28)


"Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling,

and to present you faultless before 

the presence of His glory


exceeding joy."

(Jude 24)


"You have made known to me

the ways of life;

you shall make me full of joy

with your countenance."

(Acts 2:28) 


 "God giveth to a man that is good in his sight

wisdom, and knowledge, and joy:

but to the sinner he giveth travail,

to gather and to heap up,

that he may give to him that is good before God."

(Ecclesiastes 2:26)  


  "My lips shall greatly rejoice

when I sing unto thee;

and my soul, which thou hast redeemed."

Psalm 71:23 


  "Let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice:

let them ever shout for joy,

because thou defendest them;

let them also that love thy name

be joyful in thee."

( Psalm 5:11)
