musings of a muser

hope is not an open door

hope is believing in the possibility that the closed door could open

hope is believing that even if the door never opens, it will be well with my soul; because

God is sovereign and God is good at all times; always and forever

hope is believing that there will be other doors

hope is the certain knowledge that God makes dead things alive

hope is believing — believing is faith — faith is what God desires and requires of me

” . . . the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that are not as though they were.”  (Romans 4:17b)

“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.”  (Hebrews 11:6)

“For we walk by faith, not by sight.”  (2 Corinthians 5:7)  in other words —

“We know these things are true by believing, not by seeing.”  (2 Corinthians 5:7, Modern Language translation)

“What is faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen.  It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead.”  (Hebrews 11:1)

“And Abram believed God; then God considered him righteous on account of his faith.”  (Genesis 15:6)

sincerely,        Grace Day
