Hope

Bütün ümüdüm kendimde. All my hope is in me. I read that today. It was written on a button pinned to a college student's bag. I saw her on the bus and wondered if she just liked what the button said or if she really believed it. The world would be a depressing place if everything I hoped for depended on how well I did or how good I was. That is what the people in this country are depending on. They hope that when they die they have done enough good stuff to outweigh the bad stuff. They hope that the scales tip in their favor. But they won't know until they die. Wait and see and hope for the best. Not me...

I wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him. Psalm 62:5

But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. Jeremiah 17:7

Why am I discouraged? Why so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again - my Savior and my God. Psalm 42:11

I am counting on the Lord; yes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in his word.
Psalm 130:5
