Anyways, I thought I’d share a little about me and here are a few of my favorite things:

Pens! I love writing with a good pen. My favorite pen is the Pilot G2. They write so smoothly!

Coffee!

North Carolina Tar Heels! I’m a die-hard fan as you already know if you’ve read past posts.

 

I’m not feeling that well today. I think I’m coming down with something. I’ve got a cough and the body aches….. I’m not running a fever so I doubt it’s the flu but man I feel awful.

True Hope

Image result for romans 5 3-5In my devotions this morning, it talked on the subject of hope.

The Scripture reference was found in Romans 5:1-11.

One of my favorite verses comes from this passage

And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.  (vs. 5)

We’re going to face disappointments in life. It’s inevitable. But the Lord gives us HOPE that one day we will be with Him. One day all of life’s trials and tribulations will be over and we’ll spend eternity with Him! I absolutely can’t wait for that day!

This reminds me of the song by Jeremy Camp called “There  Will Be A Day

I try to hold on to this world with everything I have
But I feel the weight of what it brings, and the hurt that tries to grab
The many trials that seem to never end, His word declares this truth,
That we will enter in this rest with wonders anew
But I hold on to this hope and the promise that He brings
That there will be a place with no more suffering
There will be a day with no more tears, no more pain, and no more fears
There will be a day when the burdens of this place,
Will be no more, we’ll see Jesus face to face
But until that day, we’ll hold on to you always
I know the journey seems so long
You feel you’re walking on your own
But there has never been a step
Where you’ve walked out all alone
Troubled soul don’t lose your heart
‘Cause joy and peace he brings
And the beauty that’s in store
Outweighs the hurt of life’s sting
But I hold on to this hope and the promise that He brings
There will be a place with no more suffering
There will be a day with no more tears, no more pain, and no more fears
There will be a day when the burdens of this place,
Will be no more, we’ll see Jesus face to face
But until that day, we’ll hold on to you always
I can’t wait until that day where the very one
I’ve lived for always will wipe away the sorrow that I’ve faced
To touch the scars that rescued me from a life of shame
And misery, this is why, this is why I sing
There will be a day with no more tears, no more pain, and no more fears
There will be a day when the burdens of this place,
Will be no more, we’ll see Jesus face to face
There will be a day with no more tears, no more pain, and no more fears
There will be a day when the burdens of this place,
Will be no more, we’ll see Jesus face to face
There will be a day, He’ll wipe away the tears,
He’ll wipe away the tears, He’ll wipe away the tears
There will be a day
