Good Morning Everyone!

I am hoping that that you are hopeful that this day will be filled with hope and fun! Hmmm…are you catching onto a theme (hope) with a specific (hope) word (hope) yet? 😉

I’m being a little silly, but I do want you to find hope in this day and every day of your life.

Hope is defined by the dictionary as this: 

  1. to want something to happen or be true and think that it could happen or be true 
  2. the feeling of wanting something to happen and thinking that it could happen, a feeling that something good will happen or be true

Hope is also defined by the Bible as this:

Biblical hope is the anticipation of a favorable outcome under God’s guidance. More specifically, hope is the confidence that what God has done for us in the past guarantees our participation in what God will do in the future. This contrasts to the world’s definition of hope as “a feeling that what is wanted will happen.”

I know this probably feels a little bit like school, so let me make it easier for you to understand.

Hope in the Lord is the fact that He has done good in the past and will not change.  That we can believe in his kindness and know that it will continue on all the days of our lives. That is the hope we have in God.

I know that things are so different than they were just a year ago. Even so, I have hope that God is doing a good thing and will bring us back to the way things were before. Our God is a God of miracles and mercy, and I believe in the promises of goodness that can only come from Him!

Try this idea! Write an Acrostic poem on paper for yourself. Whether you write out words or a poem, it doesn’t matter! The goal is just to have fun with the letters.

Acrostic poem definition

  • An acrostic is a poem (or other form of writing) in which the first letter (or syllable, or word) of each line (or paragraph, or other recurring feature in the text) spells out a word, message or the alphabet.

Here’s mine! You can find some Bible verses to look up as you read it!


H – He gives us joy – Romans 15:13

O – Over and above our needs – 1 Timothy 6:17

P – Pretty awesome – Psalm 68:35

E – Eternal King – 1 Timothy 1: 17


Stay hopeful and full of peace! ❤️
