The Proverbial Sunrise - Real Hope


Yesterday and part of today, I was offline because of a glitch with my blog. Not having much time to mess with it all, I submitted my problem to the Blogger Help Forums and waited for a response. I HOPED that it would straighten itself out and I HOPED I would not have to start over from scratch.

Everything was up and running smoothly (kind of) this morning so my HOPES were fulfilled and not dashed upon the rocks. But really...would I have gotten upset if technology failed to rally itself and my blog had disappeared? Probably...for a moment at least...but then common sense would have prevailed and life would go on...

I HOPED for so many things about my blog last night, but I had no way of knowing whether my HOPE was going to be rewarded and the changes come to pass or whether my HOPE in Blogger was misplaced and futile.

Yes, I had HOPE but then there is REAL HOPE...


Heavenly
Opportunity for
Peace
E
verlasting


Peace comes from WHERE one’s HOPE is placed and in WHOM...

Hope with assurance of the end results...
Hope with the confidence in the One that never fails...
Hope with the blessed promise of eternal life with my Saviour...
Hope that leaves no doubt as to where I will be when I leave this body...


REAL HOPE

BLESSED HOPE

THE ONLY TRUE HOPE

Sweet blessings Karen...Now that's the REAL HOPE!

Beautiful distinction between the two...and so true! I'm so glad that the Blogger Glitch worked out so you could show us the Heavenly Opportunity for Peace Everlasting! So clever & inspirational.

I like how you changed the focus off blogger, since they leave us hanging many times, not knowing
...I'm thankful we have full assurance in the One who brings lasting & eternal HOPE...love the verse you chose from Isaiah! Such a precious Proverbial Sunrise or maybe sunset today!!! Thank for your visit & kind words!

I'm so glad everything turned out okay for your blog. If it were me, I would have been VERY upset.

Thank you for the "hope" and printing the verse Isaiah 26:3.

That's the kind of hope that keeps us going!
