“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.“
– Romans 12v12
I pray to our Father who created us and has good plans for our lives, I pray to Him that he will strengthen us in hope and help us to be patient, waiting upon Him with no doubts in our hearts and all I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, amen!
How are you guys? Here, things are a little bit stressed out…I have no idea why! I just woke up tensed. I prayed, call upon the blood of Jesus and did my exercises, had my breakfast and now I do feel better but still not there. I did not want to leave the bed and at the same time I could not stay in. Do you know the feeling?
I knew, yet, how much I wanted to reach my laptop and write to you the morning message. The Lord gave me the strength to do that first step and come out of the bed. I felt His help and I felt His uplifting. It did not come immediately. It is as a cooperation: I do little, He does as well, little more, He does much more…
Be joyful in hope, He said! I have always problem with this word, I mean Hope! I prefer the word Belief! When I believe, do I need to hope? It is confusing in my mind. But I suppose that this is my problem.
“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul and signs the tune
without the words.
And never stops at all”
Whatever word we use, still, what is important is the fact that we need to be joyful. It is a decision to be joyful as we continue hoping and believing. What is fascinating is that as we hope, we need to be patient and keep praying without losing heart! A great combination, isn’t it?
Keep the faith!
