THOUGHTS FOR YOU TODAY


A Christian may for many days together see neither sun nor star, neither light in God's countenance, nor light in his own heart, though even at that time God darts some beams through those clouds upon the soul; the soul again by a spirit of faith sees some light through those thickest clouds, enough to keep it from utter despair, though not to settle it in peace. In this dark condition, if they do as Paul and his company did, cast an anchor even in the dark night of temptation, and pray still for day, God will appear, and all shall clear up, we shall see light without and light within; the day-star will arise in their hearts || Richard Sibbes

Let this one great, gracious, glorious fact lie in your spirit until it permeates all your thoughts and makes you rejoice even though you are without strength. Rejoice that the Lord Jesus has become your strength and your song - He has become your salvation || Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Hope fills the afflicted soul with such inward joy and consolation, that it can laugh while tears are in the eye, sigh and sing all in a breath; it is called "The rejoicing of hope" (Hebrews 3:6) || William Gurnall

Hope is patiently waiting expectantly for the intangible to become reality || Avery D. Miller

He that lives in hope danceth without music || George Herbert

When you say that a situation or a person is hopeless, you are slamming the door in the face of God || Charles L. Allen

Hope means hoping when things are hopeless, or it is no virtue at all... As long as matters are really hopeful, hope is mere flattery or platitude; it is only when everything is hopeless that hope begins to be a strength || Gilbert Keith Chesterton

When God comes down, He removes the immovable difficulties. When God comes down, the impossible becomes reality. God moves on behalf of the one who waits || Anonymous

Where others see but the dawn coming over the hill, I see the soul of God shouting for joy || William Blake

If you feel like you're at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on! Because God's a God of miracles, and He's holding the other end || Pat Hicks

The best we can hope for in this life is a knothole peek at the shining realities ahead. Yet a glimpse is enough. It's enough to convince our hearts that whatever sufferings and sorrows currently assail us aren't worthy of comparison to that which waits over the horizon || Joni Eareckson Tada

His purposes will ripen fast, Unfolding every hour, The bud may have a bitter taste, But sweet will be the flower || William Cowper

If preachers decide to preach about hope, let them preach out of what they themselves hope for || Frederick Buechner

Hope has two beautiful daughters Their names are anger and courage; anger at the way things are, and courage to see that they do not remain the way they are || Augustine
