Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Cor. 15:58

day 158: Hope when you don't feel like it

Zechariah 9:12
Come back to the place of safety,
all you prisioners who still have hope!
I promise you this very day
that I will repay two blessings for each of our troubles.

Romans 12:12
Rejoice in our confident hope.  Be patient in trouble and always keep on praying.


Thanksgiving is a wonderful time when families come together, eat, laugh, share and make memories.  If your able to spend time with your family, it is a blessing of a holiday.

However, not everyone in the world have family to celebrate with.  Either their family is too far away or serving in the war, or they just don't have any family left.

Days like today are so hard for those who can't be with their family.  Or those that can't afford that 'traditional' meal.

If that is you, or if you know someone who is, these verses are great sources in hope. 

It is ok to be sad today. It is ok to be upset, but don't let those feelings keep you from being thankful for what you do have.

God Bless You... and Happy Thanksgiving :)
