Rejoice in Hope and Share It

Since I am taking some time off this week to spend with my husband, I wanted to share an entry I wrote back in October 2012 as our Friday devotion. I praise the Lord that His message is always relevant. Have a blessed week. Love, Courtney

Rejoice in hope.

Romans 12:12

I realized something very practical in my relationship with Jesus. Whenever I sit down with Him to read His Word and to pray, no matter how sad I feel, He always leaves me with the message of hope. He leaves me with my face lifted up to heaven and to the hope that is in Him. Circumstances are temporary. But the hope in Jesus is eternal. And in this I can rejoice.

Without hope, we really have nothing at all. There are so many who don’t know Jesus personally, and therefore, have no hope. They have no way of knowing that no matter what is going on around them, there is always hope when you walk with Jesus. He said, “I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows Me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life” (John 8:12).

Share Jesus with someone today. Tell them about the hope you have that will never fade away. Allow Jesus to use you to lift up someone’s head to the light of Christ. Spread the message of hope. A dark and hurting world desperately needs hope more than anything else.
