Fortress of Hope
God is the giver and foundation of your faith. He is the author of salvation and eternal life. He commands all things seen and unseen. He provides the promise of an abundant life and desires to fulfill that for you. He has the omniscient ability to untangle the snares of adversity and part the stormy sea. He alone knows the path to peace.
He has a plan for your life, including all the seemingly impossible predicaments. Trust God. Surrender it to Him with unwavering faith. Pray without ceasing. Open your heart to receive how He may want to heal and instruct you, hone your character and strengthen your faith. God is certainly able to bring you through it with an awesome testimony of His greatness, all for His glory.
Just let your soul rest in Him, for He is the unlimited source of your help, hope, peace, comfort and strength.
And remember...at the end of the day, come what may, you have been promised eternity with Jesus.
We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.
You need to persevere, so that after you have done God's will, you will receive what He has promised.
The salvation of the righteous comes from the LORD; he is their stronghold in time of trouble.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, persistent in prayer.
Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day.
Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD.
Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.
I wait for the LORD, my whole being
