Hope Is Not A Strategy

The Bible is filled with us so many messages of hope.

Sometimes the challenges we face turn out differently than we would like. Many times challenges appear with only a moment’s notice.

Yet, the promise is not that life will be easy with little turbulence but rather the promise is that no matter what happens in our lives, no matter what choices we make, there is always hope.

Regardless of what our predicament might be at any given time, what will get us through the turbulence is our faith that God is in this with us. He offers us hope and all we have to do is reach out and trust.

    We serve an Awsome God! I pray every day that God is the writer/artist that holds the pencil in his hands and that my life is a copy that has been drawn on transparent paper of his plan for my life! It was or is not always easy but looking back on a year gone by I see only one set of footprints and know He was always there!! Thank you my Saviour, Protector and Provider.

    The Doctor has told me after a year of chemo, radium treatments that I am free of cancer. It was very hard to go through but I kept my mind and my HEART on Christ and each day I could feel His Loving presents. I do believe through Jesus He had His Angles next to me to hold me me up when I was down, physical and Spiritual. At 72 my life is devoted to charity. I am Grateful, Thankful, with Great Gratitude that I know the meaning of Christ Jesus. In Christ Jim Luna

  16. Ruth Vaillancourt says:

    I was very happy to see what the Bible says about God has a plan for us.

    Right in the middle, blocking the message of the Bible is an ad from google about consulting with a psychic to find out your future!! I am so upset about this attack from Satan to overshadow the word of God. I could not delete it, it just stayed there the whole time!!! The evil one is doing his dirty tricks to deceive people.

  17. Carolyn Graves says:

    Thank you for this inspiration. I say there is always hope no matter how challenging today is if God gives us another day there is hope. I live each day with hope knowing God doesn’t bring us to callenges that He’s not going to take us through. Don’t give up, don’t give in there is a breakthrogh of HOPE for you!
    Be Blessed!
    Carolyn

  24. christine says:

    This is a fantastic website. Such a blessing.

    Yes, God does have a plan for our future.
    Ask Him. If you want to know how he wants you to serve him – ask him! Truly! I did and he told me – just incredible!

    There is always hope – Jesus is hope and he is always there for each one of us, every second of every day and every night. Its ok to ask him for help, guidance and direction as well, just know that and its ok to feel the way you feel right this minute. Ask God to help you through each situation and he will, he has me. Bless each one of you.

  25. christine says:

    Jesus is our hope now and for always. He has a plan for our future, each one of us. He will guide you if you ask him to.

  26. Wanda Sapp says:

    Thank you God for being with me when you took my son home on April 20th of this past year. I could not have gone through it without you beside me. I know he is in a better place eventho my heart is still breaking for he was just a young man with such a lust for life. “Footprints In The Sand” was placed on the front of the refrigerator by him before his passing and I read it every single day and think of him and how great “YOU” are dear Lord. Thank you

  27. Harry Hughes says:

    i just want to thank God for this message, it can to me at a time when i was feeling that there was no hope. the scripture jeremiah 29:11 is one of my favorite scriptures to read for i know the plans i have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. a future i sometimes feel that i’m not deserving of but God is so greatful and forgiving to me even when i’m not. so thank you again God for all your many blessing. Thank you

  28. Renuta says:

    Praise God for whom all blessings flow. I’m thanking God right now for He alone is worthy. He has done great things. He has carried me and my family as we journeyed up the rough side of the mountain and I am eternally greatful. I’m just coming out of a very rough time and I thought I couldn’t do it and the truth be told “I” couldn’t but GOD. Halleluah can do all things but fail. He brought us through. I’m reminded of the song: I Almost Let Go”…I almost let go, I felt like I just couldn’t take life anymore. My problems had me bound, temptation all around but He held me close so I wouldn’t let go. Gods mercy kept me so I wouldn’t le go. I almost gave up, I was right a the edg of a breakthrough but couldn’t see it. The devil thought he had me oohh but Jesua came and grabbed me and He held me close so I wouldn’t let go. So I’m here today because God kept me. I’m alive today only because of His grace. Remember, even when at times you may not feel His presence He is still keeping you. For the word of God says “I will never leave you, nor forsake you”.

  29. Linda Waldron says:

    Every day I live under the shelter of my Father’s wings!! I KNOW without a DOUBT that HE has a plan for my life. I should have died 16 years ago, but through HIS love, grace and mercy I am still here, witnessing His faithfulness!!! I encourage all my brothers and sisters to be patient. TRUST IN God even when you are sitting at the bottom of the barrel. You will be AMAZED at the way in which HE WILL LIFT YOU UP!!

    Blessings!!

  30. Tina L. Brown says:

    I understand…. when all seems lost and hopeless, there he is (GOD) to give me a gentle nudge…I am not without faith, just a little lost at times. I know trust is the answer and faith is my hope.

  31. I thank the Lord for being in my life from the day I was born. I have always believed that with the Lord on my side, how can i possibly fail, I sometimes take a detour that takes longer to get to my destination, but I eventually get there. I thank you Lord for the strenght, hope, love and faith that I possess, because without my belief in you, these attributes would not be mine. I thank you for carrying me when the times are hard and at the end of that small journey, there are only one set of footprints .. it is at this times that I am at my lowest, looking back on the past, I feel a sense of relief and pride that you are my Lord. I humbly believe that you will never forsaken me.

  32. I bow my head in prayer and hope that all of you reading this will do the same. My prayer today is dedicated to all the pain and suffering around the world. Dear Lord, I pray today that all the flood and cyclone victims in Australia will find the strenght to rebuild their lives for a bigger and better tomorrow. I pray that the victims and relatives of the Earthquake in New Zealand will find the strength to see you in their midst and welcome you to help ease their pain and restart their lives again. I pray for the war-torn middle east, the protests and all the other problems they are having, Lord open their hearts so that they may solve their problems with the love of mankind in their hearts. Lord looking at the news from my loungeroom, I see pain, anguish and hope in peoples faces. I pray that mankind will open their hearts and minds and welcome you into their lives, with the knowledge that with you on their side, they can never fail and are never alone. Amen.

  33. Barbara Davis says:

    I have a friend that is in severe pain, drs. have told family that she might not survive. But, dear God just be near and dear to the family. It is so hard to stand by and watch her suffering, when there is nothing they can really do. She is in so much pain, and just screaming with pain. Please be there for them in their time of need. Thanks for all the blessings that you have given us, and please bring peace to our world and help us in our troubled world in which we live. Amen

  34. CLAUDIA says:

  35. Mervin says:

    Thank you my LORD JESUS.

    Your great care on me and all my loved ones.

    I praise your holly name all in my life.

  36. Jackie says:

    just have one comment that i felt that I’m obliged to say it to all the members of “Inspired faith”: THANK YOU.. you really inspire my faith with your letters & your videos.. God bless your service that i may receive your messages all my life till i meet the lord.. God bless you!

  37. Masayo says:

    Hope without Plan is just another idea. How well it described. Yes, I do believe God has a plan for every one of us and we are here to serve his purposes.
    It is the reason some are born to play Basketball well like Coby Bryan, Tiger Woods for the golf player, many musitians are gifted in music skill which God gave it to those people. Whethere you’ll use the God’s gifts or not is up to you. We all have something others don’t have. This is the way God planned so that we can share the differences and benefit to each other. God is LOVE.
