Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful. – (Hebrews 10:23, NIV)
Let us hold strong to the confession of our hope, never wavering, since the One who promised it to us is faithful. – (Hebrews 10:23, VOICE)
So now we must cling tightly to the hope that lives within us, knowing that God always keeps His promises! – (Hebrews 10:23, TPT)
There is something so sweet about “special” days that pop up on social media. Yesterday, apparently, was National Daughter Day. The beautiful thing about such an event, is that people took pause from the political ugliness, random rants, and whatever other copy and paste promotion that was out there, and showed a piece of their hearts in photos of their daughters. Our children are spaces where promises and faithfulness and hope come together, as we trust and pray and love, ever wanting the very best for our kids. Though I do not have daughters, (for I am blessed with brilliant and loving boys), I loved viewing the images and professions of love that demonstrated God’s faithfulness in the lives of so many. The hope we hold is found in Christ alone. As we cling closely to Him, we discover His faithfulness to fulfill what He has promised. Additionally, I am reminded that though I do not have daughters, I am a daughter – both my mother’s daughter, and the daughter of the King. May we ever hold fast to our hope in Him, for He is faithful to keep His promises.
Let’s hold fast to hope,
This trust we can claim;
In our Savior’s Name.
Evidence of love,
Goodness we declare;
Show the hope we hold,
Through grace that is shared.
In all that we say,
And in all that we do;
May our hope be clear,
As we trust God’s truth.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the unwavering hope we have in You. Thank You that You are faithful to all of Your promises. Forgive us for our frustrations and doubts when we cannot see answers as quickly as we would like. Teach us to trust You more, so that we would recognize that Your timing is perfect, and that You will never leave us nor forsake us. Show us how to love those around us in a way that shares the hope that we know. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we cling tightly to our hope in You. Amen.
