Hope in the Midst of Fears

Changing leaves

Life is changing all the time.
Nothing is permanent or stable right now.
I don’t know where I will live after November.
I don’t have what I want right now.
I don’t live where I want to live right now.

We may have to move to another temporary place, our fourth move in three years.
Our youngest has never lived more than a year in the same house.
We went from being homeless to being poor…
to being nomads.

We are tired of living like nomads.

But we’re holding onto a promise.

1 Cor. 2:9
Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.

Now hope does not disappoint because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

We are looking forward to the day when we will all be united again and we will have our own home and land.

We trust God to give us these things because He is faithful to His word.

Until it comes to pass, we will encourage ourselves with:

Hebrews 11:1
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
