Hope

hope-1804595_960_720

One of the hardest things about a chronic illness is its length. If it is not a terminal illness, you find yourself or family member facing its challenge daily. If it is a terminal illness, it may turn into a long goodbye.

Today’s Bible Verse:

Job 11:18 (KJV), “And thou shalt be secure because there is hope; yea, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety.”

What the verse means:

Regardless of the length of the goodbye, for the Christian, there is hope in Jesus Christ.

Praying using the verses:

  1. Heavenly Father, we feel secure because there is hope.
  2. Because of the hope we have in you, we can rest in security.
  3. Pray for a good day of rest.
