Easter Hope

“Be strong and take heart,
all you who hope in the Lord.”
–Psalm 31:24

Love these words.  I should read them every day– but especially at Easter, the day that is the center of our hope.  Hope because Jesus rose.  Hope for a life of meaning and purpose.  Hope for eternity with our God.  So grateful.

Psalm 25

“Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths;
guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my savior,
and my hope is in you all day long.”    –Psalm 25:4-5
