HOLDING ONTO HOPE

746

Heavenward gaze

Over the twinkling stars in space.

Looking forward to see

Dreams become reality.

Internal spirit soars and thrives

Never giving up in life.

Going forward each new day

Onward along life’s unknown pathway.

Not forgetting who stays with me;

Trusting Jesus and choosing to believe.

Obstacles are triumphantly overcome;

Hurdles are trampled into the ground.

Optimistic view of the future;

Pressing in faith to endeavor,

Enduring in trust to persevere.

Friday Verse Journal Matthew 6:25-27

“Do not worry,”

The Lord quietly told me.

“Remember I am God, the Lord Almighty.

Do not worry,”

The Lord comforted the spirit within me,

“and I am your friend for eternity.

“Do not worry,”

The Lord continued to comfort me,

“and do not fear the darkness in the eve

When the sun drops below the distant trees

And the night dawns darkening the vast sky

While you try to sleep until the morning light.

I will stay in your heart and forever by your side;

And I am always with you as your life guide.

So do not worry

When rain and clouds are all you see.

As you awake peering out the window

And see in dismay what you fear most.

Remember instead and do not fear

I am with you; I am here.

Focus on now; focus on today

Lean on me as I lead you the way.

Do not worry about tomorrow

Or be troubled and filled with sorrow.

Let me walk with you and be your friend

Today, and every tomorrow into everlasting.”

Matthew 6:25-27 (Holy Bible New International Version):

“Therefore do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothes?  And look at the birds of the air. They do not sow or reap or store away in barns and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one  of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”
