Future Hope

The hardest place that we all find ourselves in is the place of hopelessness. circumstances in the last few years has made hopelessness, mine and maybe yours, a familiar companion. A new friend who happens to have my same name, Jennifer, said that Hope is the expectation that God is going to bring good things to you in the land of the living. I rejoice in the hope of eternal life, but have easily forgotten to believe for good things in this life. When I have contemplated on my many blessings then that demon of hopelessness runs from me. I am blessed with wonderful children and their spouses, I am blessed with beautiful grandchildren, and amazing friends. That demons returns when circumstances that cause pain don't change quickly enough. So today as when look forward to a new year, I am reminded of the wonderful lessons in Jeremiah 29. As I read in the NIV-Jennifer-"I know the plans I have you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart..I WILL BE FOUND BY YOU declares the Lord, and will bring you back from captivity." Our future Hope can be found today if we seek Him with all our hearts. What a great gift for the new year--More awareness of the goodness,power and love of God in our lives. I bless you all to have more of Him than you can ask or imagine. Love you, Jennifer


  1. Thank you for reminding me of our Lord's promises to us all. With the hustle and bustle of this holiday season, we forget about the higher plans for our lives. There is so much more for us to accomplish when we bring Our Lord into our midst!
