Wednesday in the Word-Coffee, Jesus and Hope

I love coffee. Any flavor and any time. How about you? There is nothing any better to me that sitting down with a cup of coffee and God's Word. Just sort of goes hand in hand for me. I love this dishtowel that my friend Vicky made for me for Christmas. It hangs on my stove front for me to see every morning. 

 This is so true for me! I need a little bit of coffee but I sure need a A WHOLE LOT OF JESUS! Without Him I can assure you I would be nothing!

As I have been preparing for my Bible Study class the phrases "Hopelessness" came to mind in a whole new light it seemed. There are people in our midst daily that feel hopeless.  Hopeless when the doctor says, "We have done all that we can do". Hopeless when there is not enough money to carry them to the next pay day. Hopeless when they continue to battle the raging sea of addiction. Hopeless when their spouse walks out on them. Hopeless when their child walks away from God. Hopeless when they feel that no one truly cares. The continued saga of Hopelessness will forever be a tool in the hands of Satan.

But there is HOPE!


There is Hope in a God that loves us more than we can begin to fathom. There is Hope that no matter what we will face tomorrow that our Lord has already went before us. There is Hope that He is the great physician and He still HEALS today. There is Hope that there is never a step that we take that our Savior is not walking with us. There is Hope that He will never leave us nor forsake us. He is so faithful to us....even when we are not faithful! Our Hope is in HIM and HIM alone. Man will let you down. God will pick you up! 

Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Psalm 62:5

  1. He gives us the hope that nothing else can offer. No matter what I might face, I know that he is my strength and refuge. That life is just a moment, that someday all of these struggles will be over, that someday we will be rejoicing before the throne. We have hope!
    Blessings to you!

  5. Blessings, Cindy! Love this word - HOPE!It was my word for 2013 when I was navigating a very stressful year full of changes and transitions - and doing so seemingly in the dark! Hope in God was my anchor when I did not know where I was drifting to. This is such a simple truth - but oh so difficult to grasp when the fog settles in and makes the seeing hard. But, that's FAITH -
    Joy!

  6. What a thoughtful perfect gift, Cindy. Great post. I know I need Jesus too or I wouldn't have anybody to talk to every night before I go to bed. I love your tea set.......Christine

  7. Cindy, I need a whole lot of Jesus too! It breaks my heart that there are so many people that do feel hopeless. If only they could embrace the love of Jesus! Funny thing, Even though my blog is Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson, I am not a coffee drinker. Love the smell of it brewing. Does that count? lol!
    hugs,
