“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
Hope. My husband and I need to hope as he battles cancer. This verse helps us know how to keep the hope flowing.
Trust. We need to trust. Joy and peace are gifts God fills us with as we trust in Him. Hope overflows out of this joy and peace. Trust = joy + peace. Joy + peace = hope.
Romans 5 tells us that hope doesn’t disappoint because God has poured his love into our hearts. My hope is in God, in His heart, whether or not He heals my husband. I will not be disappointed in God no matter what happens. Nevertheless, I do hope my husband will be healed because nothing is too hard for the God of wonders and miracles
I am thinking about next spring. I am thinking about what Howard and I will do to celebrate when he is cancer free. I hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. It is like breathing.
