HOPE Does Not Disappoint!

Romans 5
Peace and Joy

1 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.
3 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;
4 perseverance, character; and character, hope.
5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.

I am at work today....

I have to admit, I am not feeling all that well. I woke up at 3 a.m.(or was it 4?) with some significant pain in my wrist. I am SO scared that pain will hit me again! So, Mark got me some medicine. I was able to sleep until 7:30 or so. I've been working for almost 2 1/2 isn't unbearable, but I am struggling.

I was reading the selection above this morning. I've read it many times. It never gets old! I love where it says that hope does not disappoint us....God has poured His love into us!

There is a much bigger picture than what we see here on this ol' Earth!

Whatever you are struggling with...physically, emotionally...let us HOPE. We won't be disappointed! We are LOVED!

Happy Valentine's Day!
