Bible Verse Thursday #20 - Hope

“The Lord is my portion says my soul, therefore I hope in Him.”
~Lamentations. 3:24

Waiting on the Lord means directing our attention to him in hopeful anticipation of what He will do.  It means trusting Him with every fiber of our being instead of trying to figure things out for ourselves.  He wants us to stay conscious of Him as we go about our daily life.

He has promised many blessings to those who wait on him:  renewed strength, resurgence of hope, awareness of His perpetual presence, His abiding peace.  Waiting on Him enables us to glorify Him by living in deep dependence on Him, ready to do His will.  It also allows us to enjoy Him as His presence is the fullness of joy” (Psalm 16:12).

Do you have fullness of joy? If not, ask yourself, Am I in His presence? Maybe you don't feel fullness of joy if you recently lost a loved one, suffered a broken relationship, or had your job terminated. This is normal. It is difficult to feel joy in the midst of a funeral, a divorce or a firing.

Your challenge this week will be to use this scripture or another verse that describes our hope in the Lord or how we experience fullness of joy.  Please use keyword ODBDBVT20 when uploading your project. Then drop by the Our Daily Bread Designs Forum and share your creation with us!
