I Will Hope Continually (Day 1)

Hey women’s leader, let’s perpetuate the resurrection joy of Easter over the next ten days! The Leader Connection blog is charged up and ready to deliver a True Hope Challenge to your inbox. We’ll dig into the Psalms together to discover our source of True Hope every day of the year. Do you know someone, perhaps another leader or ladies in your church, who need to be reminded of the hope we have in Christ? Would you share this email challenge with them? Friends can sign up to join us at ReviveOurHearts.com/True-Hope. I’m ready for a fresh infusion of hope. Are you? Leslie Bennett, Women’s Ministry Initiatives

But I will hope continually and will praise you yet more and more. —Psalm 71:14

Our Hope:
I have hope because God’s Word is full of promises.

Maybe you’ve heard it said that hope floats.

It does, doesn’t it? Like a bubble pushing determinately through the water to burst forth at the surface, our hope in Christ buoys us. When the pressures of life threaten to drown us, hope keeps us afloat.

Hope is so much more than happy thoughts and positive vibes. It’s more than a wish made over a dandelion flower and then blown into the wind. True Hope can only be found in Christ.

As we flip past Easter Sunday on our calendars, we want you to know that resurrection hope is yours every day, all year long. Christ’s triumph over death means that we are a people marked by hope. Unsinkable, unshakable hope.

So for the next ten days, join us in scouring the psalms, looking for traces of hope. We won’t have to look too hard. The psalmists love to remind us that no matter what we face, whether enemies or sorrows or seasons of waiting, we have True Hope because of the sovereignty and goodness of God.

Throughout the journey, we’ll give away some freebies and direct you to related resources. 

May hope bubble up in you in the coming days and burst forth to overflowing, as God’s Word reminds you of our many reasons to hope.

But I will hope continually and will praise you yet more and more (Psalm 71:14).

Reflect and Respond:

  1. How do you define hope?
  2. Are there any circumstances in your life right now that need a fresh dose of hope?

Go deeper:

Using Psalm 119 as your guide, make a list of all of the ways God’s Word gives us hope.

Giveaway:

To help you consider the source of True Hope even in seasons of suffering, we’re giving away five copies of Hope When it Hurts by Kristen Wetherell and Sarah Walton.
