Today’s Quote on Hope

Hope is called the anchor of the soul, because it gives stability to the Christian life. But hope is not simply a “wish”; rather, it is that which latches on to the certainty of the promises of the future that God has made.”  ~R. C. Sproul

Scripture for Reflection: Romans 5:1-11

Today’s Quote on Trusting God

“By believing that God keeps His promises, we will become stronger in our faith and more at peace. Hardships that once would have thrown us off course will lose their power to shake us. Hope will replace discouragement, and trust will overcome doubt. Each time trouble comes, focus your attention on your loving Heavenly Father and His ability to care for you.”  ~Dr. Charles Stanley

Scripture for reflection: Ephesians 3:20-21

Today’s Quote on Trust

“The Lord God carries us throughout our lives just as a father carries his child. The Lord carried me, and He still is. He made you. He knows what you’re good at. He knows what you can do and what you can become. Trust Him. Love Him. He’ll always love you back.”  ~Frank Peretti

Scripture for reflection: Matthew 6:1-33
