Promises of Hope

You might notice a recurring theme on this blog.

That theme is Hope.
Hope is talked about in one form or another in almost every post.

Why is that?

I'm glad you asked!

Everyone, especially the lgbtq community, should hear the message of Hope that we have been offered through God's unconditional love.

There are so many things in life that try to destroy our hope.
They try to convince us that we have little to live for; a bleak future.
We are bombarded with messages of chaos, disaster, pessimism, and pain at every turn.

At the end of the day, even if it is the worst day you have ever endured, you are left with one thing...


There is Hope that tomorrow will be better.
There is Hope that this too shall pass.
There is Hope that life is more then just the sum of past mistakes, hurts, and failures.

There is Hope in Jesus.

God's promises are yes and amen and through those He offers us Hope.

What are God's promises for me?

Here are just a few for you.
These are for ALL people so stand in them.
Claim them as your own!

Salvation- John 3:16-17 "16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." (NIV)

Healing- Isaiah 53:5 "But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed." (NKJ)

Joy- Psalms 30:5 "For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning." (NIV)

Peace- 2 Timothy 1:7 "For God hath not given us a spirit of fear, but of Power, and of Love, and a Sound Mind." (KJV)

Protection- Luke 10:19 "I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you." (NIV)

Victory- Philippians 4:13 "I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me." (NKJV)

Love- Romans 8:38-39 "38For I am persuaded beyond doubt that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, 39Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (AMP)

These are just a few of the amazing promises that belong to ALL Christians.

Thankfully, there are many more where these came from.
I encourage you to study God's word and find out just how much Hope is in there for you.

When you need joy, healing, victory, when you face obstacles that seem too large for you to overcome, grab hold of the promises that God has given you!

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is Good News Full of Amazing Mercy, Boundless Love, and Incredible Promises of Hope!

Learn and accept these Promises of Hope that your father God has offered.
I promise you that they will change your life.

As always remember,
God Loves You.
God Created You.
God Accepts You.

Until next time,
