Expressions of Hope

Expressions of hope are written throughout the Old Testament.  At times, the people of Israel lost hope, but God always found ways to restore their trust and hope to believe in Him.  

From Psalm 65:5:  “By awesome deeds you answer us with deliverance, O God of our salvation; you are the hope of all the ends of the earth and the farthest seas.

Broken faith with God

Flicker of hope remains

Have hope, seek God

Hopeful in His deeds

 

Place our Living God

Above all other gods

 

Light turns into darkness

Hiding in the shadows

Yet, God remains close

Hope grows once again

 

Living tree of hope

Will live into eternity

New buds always sprout

Strength from the Father

 

There is always hope

Even in darkest times

 

Life’s trials uproot hope

Adversaries line up against

God hears our cries

Intervenes when hope’s weak

 

Ancestors of Jacob witness

Their hope in God

The God of Jacob

Always God of Hope

 

God keeps His decrees

Believe, look to God

 

God remains always faithful

Our Lord reigns forever

For God’s righteous believers

Hope ends in gladness

 

Way of the Lord

Offers refuge with wisdom

Follow God with hope

Always in our hearts

 

Tree of Life endures

Ready to sustain us

 

Hope shows the light

Steady on life’s course

When spirit is dried

Hope quenches our thirst

 

God opens hope’s door

Inviting us to enter
