Hope

This week our Loft prompt is Hope. It kind of goes along with my theme of Joy for the year.
It is because of the hope that I have that I can have Joy.
My thoughts on this topic have been a bit scattered. I have had a hard time trying to pin down any particular aspect of it.
As a Christ follower, my hope is in the Lord and His Word. (1 TImothy 1:1, 1 Timothy 4:10, Psalm 130:5, Lamentations 3:21-24)
God has made plan a plan for me, to give me a future and hope. (Jeremiah 29:11)
In this season of grieving, it is not as those without hope.  I will see loved ones who follow the Lord again. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
This is a rather short and scattered post, but it is about all I can manage right at the moment.
I am, as always, excited to be hosting over at the Loft again, please join us and link up your posts on Hope.

Welcome to The Loft!
We are a topic driven link-up, which means that we link posts that pertain to the topic of the week. Posts that are not on topic will be deleted. We will offer a month’s worth of topics each week so you can plan and prepare for a post that helps you enter into the conversation. Here are the topics for the next month:
January 20 ~ Hope
January 27 ~ Pot Luck ~ You may link up any post, on any topic today!
February 3 ~ Family
February 10 ~ Love
Just a reminder that the link-up goes live on Wednesday morning at 5am and will stay live until the following Monday at 5pm. If you link up at The Loft, please do not link-and-run. We want to create conversation and community, therefore, we ask that if you linkup one post, please visit two others. There are some beautiful people who link-up each week, and visiting their posts is the best way to get to know them.
 
Now, it it time to get to today’s link-up. Our topic is your Hope.
You will find the linky at the bottom of my post. Enjoy the fellowship at The Loft.

  1. Robbi, I too found it hard to just “capture” this hope thing.
    We, in our culture, say the word so flippantly that it’s lost its power. I just didn’t know what I was going to write. I wrote an entire post treating hope like “faith”. That didn’t work, so I tried again. I tried to partner faith with hop so I could go ahead with my post.
    Nope.
    That didn’t work either. I remembered: Faith. Hope. Love. They’re treated with their own meaning and work. So! Heavy Sigh! I asked, “Lord, Sir. This might sound strange from me, but I’m sure you’ll give me a break. What’s your opinion of hope.”
    I stopped writing, moved on to the demands of the day. Within an hour I was singing, “My hope is built on nothing less than…”
    I had what I needed for my post. Yep! My hope is built on….
    Amen, Sister, Amen! Blessings, Chris

  2. It was enough friend, it was enough. Sometimes simple truths don’t need a lot of fan fair. Praying for you while you grieve. Coming to you from The Loft.
