Where Do You Place Your Hope?

Have you ever done something, perhaps a craft, or had a funny story, or maybe a good idea and you share it with someone else and it falls flat?  You know what I'm talking about... you are SO excited about this fill in the blank thing that you just have to share it, and when you do the response isn't all you hoped it would be.

I think it's safe to say that we have all been there at one time or another.  And it's at times like these that I am reminded that when I place my hope in temporal things or people that it may will return void and I will be disappointed. BUT when I place my hope in Jesus Christ, I am never disappointed!

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade." 1 Peter 1:3-4

"The Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love." Psalm 147:11

"But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:31

So where do you place your hope?

"My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteousness.
On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand."

Edward Mote
