Hope Everlasting ~

hope-in-living-god CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
Hope brings . . .
my heart gladness,
 rest unto my strife
 Hope gives me courage
 brings strength to my life.
Hope lifts up my soul,
 fills me full of grace
 Hope teaches me to wait
 to seek His Holy face.
Hope is my shield,
 in these days of evil
 Hope is my escape from
 the world’s upheaval.
Hope is my refuge,
 a place for me to run
 Hope is my anchor
 in God’s begotten Son.
Hope is everlasting,
 brings God  great pleasure
 Hope makes me happy
 for, it’s my eternal treasure.
Hope is full of praise,
 is something I can trust
 Hope turns me away
 from every earthly lust.
Hope is my salvation,
 full of mercy and favor
 Hope brings redemption
 through my Lord and Savior.
Hope is my patience,
 in things that aren’t seen
 Hope is my future promise
 to endure time in between.
Hope is steadfast,
 it is active and lively
 Hope is glorious
 it’s confident and mighty.
Hope is my portion,
 the source of my peace
 Hope is my assurance
 my joy will never cease.
My Hope is up in heaven,
 I found it in the Good Word
 My Hope is the mystery behind
 all of the truth I have heard!

1 Peter 3:15
“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts:
  and be ready always to give an answer
  to every man that asketh you
  a reason of the hope that is in you
  with meekness and fear:”
King James Version

I used over 20 different verses
 found in the Old and New Testament
 to tell what My Hope is based on.
