I had a question come to my mind yesterday. Why was David so loved by God?

  1. He failed as a father. His own son was trying to kill him.
  2. He had a soldier murdered so he could have his wife.
  3. He committed adultery.

That doesn’t sound like someone God would ove. BUT love David he did. He said David was a man after his own heart,

Gives us hope right? He can do some pretty terrible things and still be forgiven by God? YES!

Then I wondered if I really lead a good life myself? Did I do enough to be acceptable to God? It is sometimes hard to think that. I am not always a goodie two shoes.

Then I did some more thinking. (Gave me a headache!)

I should really define my life by what God did for me and through me.

I am certainly not an angel. I am certainly not a perfect father or husband, but I know that God loves me the way I am. He just is trying to mold me into a better self.

I also thought of one verse that I love, Isaiah 40:8. The grass withers and flowers fade, but the word of our God will stand for ever.

We need to anchor our lives on His word. We need to look forward to the future He is bringing us.

The Best Four Letter Word in the World is Hope

Times are not friendly on our planet. There are riots, pandemics, shootings, and violence.

Some people do not know what hope is. They hide in their basements and try to not face the world.

You often see the picture of an animal sticking his head in the sand out of fear. That is what we are facing.

What things do we need to do to overcome all of this?

Suggestions:

  1. God never wavers. He is always by your side.
  2. Jesus went all the way for you and I to have eternal life.
  3. 99% of what we worry about never happens.
  4. When the going gets tough, the tough get going.
  5. Block out all the negative stuff in your brain and replace it with positive stuff.
  6. Walls form. Work your way around them, through them, or under them.

In the title I mentioned that hope is the best four letter word in the world. Well, the worst word in the world is hopelessness. Just the opposite of hope.

Hope is an anchor for our lives. This anchor solidifies like a boat in the wind. our hopes are in the promises of God.

Hope is my favorite word. I have two books with the word hope in them. The first one is Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World. This book won a national award from the Readers Favorite Awards. You can order a copy from this site.

My second book that is almost finished is called, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life. This book is reaching out to veterans and current service members who may be struggling with PTSD, TBI, depression, anxiety, etc.

Why am I writing this book? I am heart broken that 22 veterans or service members, are taking their own lives every day. Yes, I said every day. I am hoping this book will help bring that number down to zero.

Cling to hope. Hope gives you a chance to face life as we know it today.
