This Weather is Hopeful to Me

This looks good! Very very good. I like the cold weather. It somehow seems hopeful to me, I don’t know why. Which is interesting, because during chapel this morning, Terry Law is talking about hope. Faith, hope and love. Lord knows, I have heard plenty of sermons about faith (thanks P. Brian) and a lot about love, but, as Terry pointed out, no one seems to talk about hope very much. Maybe I should learn something about hope . . .

(Notes from Terry Law:)

“Something good is going to happen to me.”

This is a saying made famous by Oral Roberts, but it is the ultimate statement of hope. We, as Christians, must stand on a foundation of hope.

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God,
to those who are the called according to His purpose” (Rom. 8:28)

We must keep this verse close to our heart. This is how God approaches our lives.

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” (Ps. 23:6)

“If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!” (Matt. 7:11)

God, by His nature, is good. That is who He is.

This is a hopeful thought for the morning.
