He has brought us by faith into this experience of God's grace, in which we now live. And so we boast of the hope we have of sharing God's glory! ~ Romans 5:2 (GNT)
The hope given to us by Christ is what fills our gas tanks and keeps us going.PRAYER:
Lord, you are all I have. No one or no thing is reliable enough to carry me through. You are my only hope. I say that on days when I'm thinking clearly. But there are times when I am not thinking and I begin to believe that if we could change politicians or come up with a new invention that would cure the common cold -- then life would be good. But even if those things happen that will not fix everything. Remind me when necessary that you are our only hope. I'm going to live in anticipation -- of the day when the glory of Christ outshines all the darkness. Amen.
