“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13 NIV)

My soul is desert dry.

I forgot to come to the cup…to drink of Your word, to breathe Your prayers, to sit in Your presence. The sands are rough under my straying feet as I wander.

“Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy. For the Lord Most High is awesome, the great King over all the earth.” (Psalm 47:1-2 NIV)

Joy
A drop in the cup.

The God-hope seeps into the dry, thirsty cracks of my soul. It makes me stop and look around, longing, desperate for more.

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27 NIV)

Peace
It fills me to the brim.

I close my eyes to hold it in and just focus on your giving. My soul lightens, peace-full, as the desert troubles and fears float away in Your tides.

“Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.” (Psalm 9:10 NIV)

Trust
I feel it overflow.

My feet now on Your firm foundation, the desert sands have washed away.

Joy. Peace. Trust.

Quenched by the hope of God, my soul no longer thirsts.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
