Hope for the future?

It has been a while since my last post! Life is pretty busy at the moment! I Have been thinking about a verse that seemed to pop up a few times during the past week in different occasions and thought I would share it with you.

Our church organized a beautiful flower and music festival last week and many people from our village and other places were able to see flower displays that illustrated some verses from the Bible. All the people involved organising it and the effort behind the scenes were unbelievable. God is good! His Name was exalted and many people heard about His love and what He offers through Jesus this weekend.

The verses that stayed with me throughout this past week are:

‘All people are like grass, and all their faithfulness is like the flowers of the field. The grass withers and the flowers fall, because the breath of the Lord blows on them. Surely the people are grass. The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures for ever.’ Isaiah 40:6-8

It was really amazing and very real to see all those flowers in the church and hear these verses and see that it is so true. The flowers are so beautiful but they wither and die and all that beauty is gone. Our life is so fragile. So short. Where are we putting our hope? The Bible tells us that the Word of our God endures forever. Do we trust Him? Do we put our hope in Him? Do we take great joy in learning from His word and trying to practice it in our lives?

I have been a Christian for many years and I was very challenged this weekend to look in my own heart and check if I am putting my hope in things that will wither and die or if all my hope is in God, through Jesus.

May He grant us all a deeper desire to follow Him and cherish His Word more!

God bless.
