Learning and growing in faith…

From the Book of Common Prayer (Proper 28)
Blessed Lord, who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: Grant us so to hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Hope.  Such a good Word.  The Bible has so much Hope in it.  It’s not just that Jesus loves us but it’s all those other stories too.  Stories about healing and mistakes and forgiveness, and anger, and love.  Stories that remind me that God is Love, I am loved, you are loved, we are loved. 

Hope.  Such a good Word. I have to work at being full of Hope.  I work at it by creating playful and  fun pictures, coming up with stories about God, and spending time reading the Bible.

What do you do to stay full of Hope?  Do you play? Do you sing?  Do you hug?

Hope.  Such a good Word.
