His Encouragement # 37

Welcome to His Encouragement. I have joined with some blogging friends to bring you a new Bible verse every Thursday, and a little discussion of hope and encouragement. We welcome you to join the conversation by adding your daily verse of encouragement as well.

I pray that these Thursday posts become an encouragement to you and help you end your week strong in God’s love and purpose for you. God bless!

May the God of hope fill you with all
joy and peace as you trust in Him,
so that you may overflow with hope
by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 15:13

 

This has been a rough week. I’ve felt that I give and give and give and then give some more, to the point where I feel empty of strength to give another drop. My prayer last evening as I finished my evening devotion, was “fill my cup Lord, for I feel empty.” I have struggled to find joy. To be honest, I wasn’t even going to write a post today, because I had nothing to give.

But then, this morning when I picked up my Bible and read my devotions, this verse jumped out at me. A promise from God that He will fill us with joy and peace that we will overflow with hope. Just as I had been praying!

I’ll be honest, I still feel tired. I still don’t feel full. But I trust that God is using this to help me turn to Him more, and using this to gently help me share the struggle with others. Because it is in pressing together as a community that we can lift each other up and become a blessing to others.

 

Now it is your turn!

Today’s Thursday Encouragement:

May the God of HOPE fill you with all joy and peace
as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with HOPE
by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 15:13

 

The great Advent hope provides a correct perspective for life and a true identity as well as encourages and brings lasting joy.

I pray that this Christmas season you and your family will find time to enjoy the joy of salvation and have the mind of Jesus, the model of humility.

 

Now it is your turn!
