Hope Anchored in Jesus
Romans 15:13 (NLT) I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the holy Spirit.

Our confidence about life and about each other is strengthened by the peace, the hope, and the trust we have in Jesus. Life is so pleasant when everything is going well for us. But when we have difficult days, we sometimes act like we forgot Whose Presence we are in – even when we pray. Just like that, we shut down all our joy and peace because we don’t have an instant fix to a temporary hiccup. Shame on us. Our hope in Jesus has roots that anchor us in Him, making us able to stay grounded through tough times. So, on this day and for all days to come - when difficulty taps you on your shoulders – stay in peace. Keep your hope and trust in Jesus and let the power of the Holy Spirit reassure you that whatever it is that interrupts your pleasant days - ‘it too shall pass’.
