Welcome to our home on the web. From wherever you are around the world or just down the street, we’re glad you stopped by. Feel free to look around and make yourself at home. What’s ours is yours. We are looking forward to meeting you one day. If not here, in our eternal home.
Like life…we’re still under construction. Thank for your patience while we put things on the website to help you and your friends.
Please remember, God has good thoughts toward you. He believes in you and we believe in you. You are the joy that motivated him to send his Son into the world. He has never had an evil thought toward you, because he has your best interest at heart. The prophet Jeremiah speaks clearly about God’s heart toward you:
“I know the plans that I have for you, declares the LORD. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope. Then you will call to me. You will come and pray to me, and I will hear you. When you look for me, you will find me. When you wholeheartedly seek me, I will let you find me, declares the LORD. I will bring you back from captivity.” (Jeremiah 29:11-13) The eternal loving God is saying that his plans for you are filled with hope. So, be kind to yourself.
Let your heart be filled with hope. There is no such thing as false hope. Why? Because hope is eternal. When you believe in hope you exercise an eternal power. However, a challenge will rise up against hope.
When God inserted you into creation, and right into the middle of the most fantastic adventure story ever imagined, you received the physical limitation of a human perspective. The way you think about things will try choke the eternal power of hope, and leave you a beggar. This is what the Apostle Paul was talking about in Corinthians:
“When I was a child, I spoke like a child, thought like a child, and reasoned like a child. When I became an adult, I no longer used childish ways. Now we see a blurred image in a mirror. Then we will see very clearly. Now my knowledge is incomplete. Then I will have complete knowledge as God has complete knowledge of me. So these three things remain: faith, hope, and love. But the best one of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:11-13)
Hope is the confident expectation that a promise given will be fulfilled! When I was a child, I did not see hope as eternal but connected to temporary things, and therefore hope appeared temporary. As a child, I could only see hope in blurred images. Like when my father promised to take me fishing, and for a week I looked forward to that promise. When that day came the hope ended because it was fulfilled. The hope that sustains the human heart is the same. When you choose to believe in Jesus Christ and receive his promises, you receive an eternal promise that will be fulfilled both here and in heaven. This promise is out of this world. With this understanding I grew up and my knowledge was made complete in God.
Yes… you can have bucket loads of hope. In fact, we want you to receive hope everyday of your life. We want you to have so much hope, that you will give it away like candy. So, believe his promises and walk with him. He is eternal hope and he is with you.
God bless you with peace and much love.
