The Proverbial Sunrise - Living Hope




This is such a beautiful scripture about our living hope! I love this version from The Message…




What a God we have! And how fortunate we are to have him, this Father of our Master Jesus! Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we've been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven—and the future starts now! God is keeping careful watch over us and the future. The Day is coming when you'll have it all—life healed and whole.
1 Peter 1:3 MSG



Please join Amanda at The Proverbial Sunrise to share in our hope!

"Life healed and whole" - how encouraging that is! I do enjoy The Message version for stating things just how they need to be said.
I am looking forward to life healed and whole.
In the meantime, I am so grateful that that future starts NOW and that we can live our brand new life here on earth too, even though it isn't quite whole, or completely healed.
Thanks, as always, for the encouragement my friend.
I have missed reading your cheer!
