Verses of Hope

When you are hurting you are in need of hope. This year my Word of the Year is HOPE. I have been collecting verses all this year that have been giving me hope. Here are links to several of them...

We all need hope in order to wade through life. There are seasons when we may need it even more. I am in one of those seasons. A few weeks back I went and bought a stack of pretty index cards ringed together. My goal was to collect verses of hope that I could read each morning. 

Life has been a series of losses for so long now that I need an extra dose of hope almost daily. My lifelong fight with depression and anxiety don't make the grieving any easier. I literally have to battle myself to re-frame my negative thinking. Maybe you do, too? Are you suffering? Feeling like life is too hard to be happy? Grieving? Wishing that whatever has become of life was not your reality? I have been there. I AM there on many days. On the tough ones I have to constantly realign my thinking with His. Not easy, but worth it if I am going to make it through.

I would love to share with you the verses of hope tucked away in my stack of index cards plus a short devotional on each of them.  My prayer is that you will find hope in His Word even if life is less than perfect, less than good. I am praying for you...even if I don't know your name or your situation...praying that God will give you hope.

Here is a list of the posts. More will be added as time goes on and I search for hope.

Here is another great 31 Days series from my friend, Wendy. 31 Scriptures to Encourage the Broken-hearted.
