Be Still, Pray, and Have Hope (Part 1)

Be Still, Pray, and Have Hope (Part 1)

My heart aches these days.  Every time I go on social media I see posts from people I know – good, honest people with strong faith – in a near panic over the future.  “We HAVE to vote this way – it’s our only hope!”   “But  you don’t understand – we have to think about the Supreme Court!!”  “Our lives are at stake if she wins!”


It hurts me so to see people so upset and anxious.  This is not how God wants us to live.  He wants us to be at peace, to have joy, to trust in Him, not some candidate or political party.  He wants us to have HOPE.  As Christians, we need to carry in our heart the hope that comes with knowing God is always with us and always has a plan.  Even if things get dark and ugly – which they may – if we keep our eyes on Jesus, we can be assured that things will work out according to God’s Holy Will.

So now, you may be asking  yourself, “What makes her so sure?  I know we’re supposed to trust God, but shouldn’t we be doing something?”  Well, as a matter of fact, yes, we should be doing something – we should be praying, we should be living our faith, and we should be doing just what the Bible says – being watchful and always ready for what is to come.  Spend some time with Luke 21, and you’ll get the idea.  ;o)

Before I say anything more, I want to clarify.  I am no prophet.  I don’t claim to have any special knowledge or understanding, I haven’t seen or heard any heavenly messages, and I don’t claim to know what is going to happen.  That said, however, I have come to believe that the next year is going to be very interesting.

The last several months, I’ve heard about various things that will be occurring over the next year.  All I’ve done is connect the dots.   Throughout all of history, God has spoken to us through signs.  Why would He stop now?  It is reasonable to assume that He is still giving us messages today.  The question is, are we paying attention?

Over the next several blog posts, I will share with you what I have observed.  I promise you, there is good reason to hope.  We don’t have to be afraid and we don’t have to panic.  God has got this!  Even though things may get very difficult, He has a plan and we don’t ever have to worry.  Rest in Him and He will give you peace.
