Summer is buzzing along. It is hard to believe the school bells are starting to ring. I feel like a school girl every time summer comes to an end. It makes me incredibly sad. Nothing says fun to me like a hot Missouri day~ while soaking up the sun in a big blue body of cool water. This Missouri girl loves to swim just about as much as I love anything.
This moving to a new city is not for sissies. I sort of feel lost. I miss my family and friends and I miss my favorite places to go . I miss my sweet neighbor whom I shared coffee and conversation with almost every day. I am praying that God helps me fit in soon and that He brings new friends in my life.
Yet right here in my lost feeling, I am remaining silent~ for it is here that God has reached out His hand to me in a new way. It is here when things did not go as I planned that I am finding out who my God really is. Here is where I only can look for His extended hand.
But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.
My hope is found in nothing less than Jesus Christ and His righteousness. It is in this lost place that I remember that my hope is only in my Saviour. Hope makes everything seem possible~ it causes our spirit to rejoice. God's hope is the answer to every test, every trial, and every problem.
Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee;
I don't know where you are today. If you are feeling lost I pray that you find hope today in Jesus Christ.
