Where Hope Lives

Does your spirit need a lift today?

Consider this; there’s a passage of scripture that’s a virtual door to a room filled with eternal optimism. No, it’s not a place where everything gets suddenly fixed, it’s a place where hope lives. It’s a place where vision clears and burdens get lighter; and the door to the room swings on a hinge of “therefore”. The words were penned by a man of sorrow and distress, who in the midst of bewilderment chose to open the door:

“Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; “The Lord is my portion” says my soul, therefore, I hope in Him!”   – The Prophet Jeremiah in Lamentations 3:22-24 NKJV

“Therefore, I hope in Him”…that’s the hinge. Because of His unfailing compassion, there is reason to hope. Perhaps you would like to step into the room today. If so, think about His faithfulness, catch a fresh glimpse of His kindness, and get a fresh breath of encouragement…

    I love that “the Lord is my portion”. Do you have any specific thoughts on that? I’m thinking it has to do with full provision, sustenance and satisfaction in Him.
