Hope & Confidence

But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.
Jeremiah 17:7
I read this verse this morning during my quiet time and it's just been rolling through my mind all day. It's easy to put our hope and confidence in things or people.  It requires faith on our part to trust in God, which is not always the easiest thing to do.  I've so been there! If you've read my past blog posts then you know some of my story.  In the past I've put my hope and confidence in a job or a person only to leave me disappointed, disillusioned and discouraged.  The Lord is the only one who has never failed me. He is the only one who knows what lies ahead and gives me a "future and a hope" (Jer. 29:11). 
Maybe today you feel like you are in a dark place...you feel like there is no hope.  Your situation may look bleak.  Maybe you are putting your hope & trust in someone or something other than God.  Maybe you feel the only person you can trust is you.  I urge you to turn everything over to Him and trust Him.  Make Him your hope & confidence knowing that He is good & He has a plan for you that will be for your ultimate good.  He has plan for you that goes beyond what you can even ask or imagine (Eph 3:20).  
Hold on to Him.  Seek Him.  He will never fail.  
More to come soon! Until then...all my love & am praying for you!
