Perseverance and Hope

By: Shari A. Miller

Happy Wednesday morning friends!

 Today I would like to share with you a set of verses from the fifth chapter of Romans.

 "Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us." Romans 5:3-5

God allows trials in our life so that we may grow closer to Him. Through this suffering we experience on earth we develop the perseverance to keep seeking God and praising His name. Through these trials God assures us with a bounty of love that only He can give.

You may be completely discouraged by all the trials that keep happening to you and your family. I know I am! It may seem like you are drowning and have no relief from the pressures of this world.
Yet, you don't have to be drowning. Give it all to Jesus and realize that it's with His power alone that you can set your feet on solid rock.

Remember that there is hope! Just turn your eyes heavenward and dig deep within your soul and you'll find the one and only true hope in Jesus Christ our Lord.

  1. I love Romans 5, and my word for 2017 came from verses 1 and 2: Standing!

  2. Amen! Such a great reminder that God is unchanging.

  3. That's one thing that helps me in trials - knowing that He has a purpose in them.
