Happy July to all of you‼ This month is so amazing and each day is bursting with hope🎉
Though I have been away for a tiny moment working on other projects I have not forgotten all of you dear and wonderful people.
Today, I want to invite all of you to either take a look at my Facebook page or befriend me here, just follow this hyperlink https://www.facebook.com/ElderShawnBriscoe
You will get to read words of encouragement🎁 as well as take a small look at what has been taught during the past or this current month📖 I don’t know why I never thought of this before💡 This keeps us close and I want to experience the friendship and siblinghood that we have with one another.
So, I have shared with you that the word for July is HOPE🎊 What is hope exactly I have found out while speaking with people that hope means different things to individuals. Below, I will share with you just what hope is and you can go to my Facebook page to see how I may try to encourage those that come to the page.
Hope is a desire for some good, accompanied by at least a slight expectation of obtaining it. A belief that it is obtainable🙌🏼
Hope implies some expectation of obtaining a desired good or at the very least the possibility of possessing it. An example of this type of hope is found in 1 Peter 1:3 NKJV; Blessed be The GOD and FATHER of our LORD JESUS The CHRIST, who according to HIS abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of JESUS The CHRIST from the dead. Also, take a quick look at what the book of John has to share with us regarding our having a living hope. John 3:3, 5.
Hope is having confidence in a future event; something unseen, yet. Psalm 43:5 CEB; Why, I ask myself, are you so depressed? Why are you so upset inside? Hope in GOD! Because I will again give HIM thanks, my saving presence, and my GOD.
Hope can be given to others either by direct person-to-person contact🤝🏼 or another means of communication☎, or by that which furnishes ground of expectation, or promises desired good. An example of this is found in Joel 3:16 AKJV, but the LORD will be the hope of HIS people and the strength of the children of Israel.
Hope will always give those who understand what hope is, pleasure or joy😃
Hope is not a desire or a wish. Our misplaced desires and what we wish for may be accompanied and produced with anxiety and pain. Who wants that?😞
Okay, now that we know exactly what hope is and is not, it is my prayer that each day you face every day with hope. But should you forget, stop by my Facebook page, and I hope you will find something that will encourage you.
