03/18/20 - Pastor John

The Bible verses I’m reflecting on are usually chosen by a simple bible app each day. I’m not searching for scripture on a topic for these posts… I’m acting on what is presented to me. I’m asking to see joy and peace in scripture. I’m asking for joy and peace in all things.

This scripture reminds me that God is a God of HOPE. Hope is in some way a desire for something to happen. It can be easy to desire SPECIFIC things, say like the end of this pandemic and isolation!

While that is ONE of my prayers, the other is that I might have joy and peace from God so that I overflow with HOPE in every situation.

I want to overflow with HOPE about the gift of this day, even in the midst of challenges. So, today I will be praying that YOU receive peace and joy - from God - and that it leads to overflowing hope in/about the good things God is revealing all around us.

I’ll be praying for you.
