May the God of hope
fill you with all joy and
peace in believing,
so that by the power of the Holy Spirit
you may abound in hope.
~ Romans 15:13
That verse was helpful to me when I was pregnant with Paloma. As a result, we gave her the middle name Joy. But, today the Lord has me holding on to "peace in believing."
Oooo... I love that verse. I love that TRUTH. I can have PEACE... this day... as I believe.
What am I believing?
I'm believing God to work a miracle by drawing hearts to Him. Not too hard for the God who created them, eh? I'm praying for the salvation of some near and dear people to my heart. And my faith is growing. By His Spirit I am abounding in hope right now.
Lord, You know the exact situation I'm thinking of and You desire for those persons to be saved as well. In fact, You care more about their souls than I. Thank You for the joy I have because I know You! Grant that to ones on my heart and mind...
