“I’ve got peace that makes no sense
So, I won’t be going under
I’m not held by my own strength

‘Cause I’ve built my life on Jesus
He’s never let me down

He’s faithful through every season
So why would He fail now”

Need Some Real Hope?

Real Hope Ammunition For Your Hard Battles

How do you live through this hard thing — that’s effecting everything? How do you keep finding a way forward — without losing your hope along the way?

How do you keep taking one step after another — when you want to be on another road?

For Our Tender places, For our Hard Stories, For All of Us looking for More than a Way Through, but a New way to actually Be, a New way of Life

“I will lift my eyes to the calmer of the storm!”
this right here! put your eyes on Him. no matter the hard, look Up.

…so, honestly, it turns out, everywhere we turn,
that hopes & plans & people can let us down,
and You, Father, are beckoning to all of us:

“The name of the LORD is a strong tower;
the righteous run into it and are safe.” Proverbs 18:10

People will fail us sometimes —
but You never fail anyone, anytime, Lord.

People aren’t ever strong towers —
You alone are, Lord.

“Don’t be anxious or get discouraged.
God, my God, is with you in this;
He won’t walk off & leave you in the lurch.
He’s at your side “
1Chron.28-20 MSG

“Stay alert, with your eyes wide open in gratitude.” Col.4:2 MSG

No matter what’s coming at you this week, the thing is:
No amount of regret changes the past,
No amount of anxiety changes the future,
Any amount of grateful joy changes the present.
