Abound in Hope

Romans 15:13  
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Yesterday I ended my Happy Moments post by saying, "It's hopeless."  How's that for irony?  I was venting.

Anyway, that moment of brutal honesty turned my thoughts toward the spiritual truth that we are not without hope in Him.  I will hold on to Galatians 6:9, not growing weary of doing good [read, walking in the Spirit, staying connected to the Head], and I will remember that He has not given up on us or on T.  He is still working, even after 23 years of marriage.  And even if T and I finish our days having made not having made any emotional progress in our relationship, God will still have accomplished His purposes in our lives, whatever those may be.  We live for a higher purpose than to be fulfilled emotionally in each other. 

Galatians 6:9  Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.

I am not without hope.  And I will not grow weary in doing good.
