Hope4TheHeartAlways
God’s heart and my heart connected for infinity

 

Hello if you are here, I am guessing you are looking for hope.  I have good news, there is unconditional hope.  Let’s just say life has given me lots of opportunities to learn from experience.  Whether I learned to hope or to be bitter was my choice.  So if you are looking for hope, keep reading.

 

Let me introduce myself.

 

  • Do I have days where life just seems too hard? Yes.
  • Do I have days where I go what the heck is going on? Yes.
  • Do I have days when I want to give up? Yes.
  • Do I have days when I look around and see the pain in other peoples lives and my heart aches for them?  Yes.
  • Do I have days when there seems to be more pain than there is joy?  Yes.
  • Do I have questions without answers?  Yes.
  • Do I have days when my heart is breaking?  Yes.
  • Do I have days when I am sick and tired of being sick and tired?  Yes.
  • Do I have days when I wonder how can I write about hope when I feel like this?  Yes.

 

What’s the commonality with all those questions?  On everyone of those days I also have a choice.  That is why this website is here; to share with you the choices I have learned about so that regardless of circumstances you can come to know as I have come to know that there is always hope.

 

This website is a place where if you have any of the same questions or maybe even some I haven’t thought of — you are welcome here.  It is a place to be real with yourself; real with God and find real answers.

 

I don’t know about you – but my “go to” was “be strong” and will-power my way through whatever challenge I was facing.  People around me would try to encourage me with the same advice “be strong”.  It wasn’t working for me.  I discovered pushing myself to “be strong” and putting on the mask of “everything is ok/will be fine” just put a barrier between my heart and my Heavenly Father’s comfort.  I was trying to manufacture my own hope.  However, when I chose to be real and transparent with myself and my Heavenly Father, it opened the connection for my heart to connect with His heart and find real, unconditional hope.

 

What I have found is if I will  allow my heart to express whatever feelings I’m experiencing  rather than suppress those feelings and beat up my heart with what I know intellectually and have been taught – whether those feelings are unbelief, anger, fear, doubt, grief, pain [you know – any and all of those feelings that our enemy would have you believe make you a failure as a christian] – that expression becomes my “cry out to God” as Paul writes in Ephesians and

 

“it gives me a mind ready to receive wisdom and revelation
so that I may truly know my Heavenly Father.
It opens the eyes of my heart, to let the light of His truth flood in.
Being real and transparent allows Him to shine His light
on the hope to which He is calling me to embrace.
It reveals to me the glorious riches He is preparing as my inheritance.
It allows me to see the full extent of His power that is at work in those of us who believe,
and come into agreement with His might and power in my life.
Friends, it is this same might and resurrection power that our Heavenly Father used
in the Anointed One to raise Him from the dead and
to position Him at His right hand in heaven.
There is nothing over Jesus.
He’s above all rule, authority, power, and dominion;
over every name invoked, over every title bestowed in this age and the next.
God has placed all things beneath His feet and
anointed Him as the head over all things for His church.
(Ephesians 1:17-23 – The Voice).

Now that  is unconditional hope!

 

Does that mean my situation changes immediately?  Sometimes it does change in the natural immediately, but not always.

 

What does change is my heart.  Hope gives me the courage to have faith and faith is the doorway to connecting to God’s promises to me and to open the resources of heaven to invade my world to destroy the torment of “is that all there is”.  NO.  Hope tells me there is more.  Just like the sunrise tells me there will be another day.

 

“Those who know how to reign in life with godly wisdom
will become the shelter for those who need to learn.”
Bill Johnson

 

That is my desire for  www.hope4theheartalways.com  that it would facilitate godly wisdom that helps us to reign in life because we have unconditional hope and to be the shelter for those who don’t yet have it.

    • Hello Lessons By Heart! I’ve been away on vacation and not checking my blog. Thank you for reading my blog and your kind comments and encouragement on several posts. It means a great deal to me! We seem to have a similar perspective that if we choose to look for our Heavenly Father we will find Him – unconditionally. I look forward to sharing more of our journeys with each other. Here’s to hearts filled with hope!
