On this first Sunday of Advent, I simply want to share a few verses of hope with you. No extra thoughts of mine, just the verses themselves. May one strike a spark of hope in your heart as we begin this season.
Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again—my Savior and my God!
~Psalm 42:5 NLT
O Israel, hope in the LORD; for with the LORD there is unfailing love. His redemption overflows.
I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.
I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance.
