What It Means To Have a Living Hope and Thriving ThursdaysPosted by KM Logan on Sep 18, 2013 in Blog Posts | 1 comment
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 1 Peter 1:3
When you have Christ in your heart you don’t have pie in the sky wishful thinking. You have a living hope.
Satan would like nothing more for all of us to forget that. He would like nothing more than the stress of the mundane to overwhelm us. He would like nothing more for worry to drown us.
When things get too stressful at home with the kids, when they aren’t obeying, and when that stress bleeds over into your marriage, remember: you have a living hope.
When the doctor says cancer, remember: you have a living hope.
When a loved one dies, remember: you have a living hope.
When you don’t know how things will turn out remember: you have a living hope.
When you don’t know where the money will come from remember: you have a living hope.
Our living hope will be there in our darkest moments and our times of greatest joy. Never forget the hope you have in Christ Jesus.
Now it’s your turn, what does a living hope mean to you?

Thriving Thursday’s is a link up for family-friendly bloggers, who are choosing to THRIVE in their lives. It’s a place for us to encourage and inspire one another to live life to the fullest–in Jesus Christ. Link up your posts about thriving–in marriage, faith, parenting, homemaking, relationships, in the kitchen, in frugality.
Everything we do can be a ministry and worship to our Lord. Link up as many posts as you want, and I hope that you’ll take the time to visit some other participants as well.
We are so blessed by the posts you all share! We really look forward to seeing all of the encouragement shared here each week. Keep it coming! Sometimes we’ll highlight posts here, and we also pin my favorites to the Thriving Thursdays Pinterest Board.
