"There is no difference between Jew and Gentile- the same LORD is LORD of all and richly blesses all who call on Him"
Our hope is always found in the Word. I am so thankful for the unfailing promises that God gives us. I am also thankful for the hope that is sometimes found in the words of a friend, or in my case, our church elder. We were blessed last week with a great elder visit. After a difficult few weeks, he gave me renewed hope by saying that God will surely bless us (as He already has), and how we often measure our blessings by successes, therefore we miss the many blessings that are already bestowed upon us. My cup overflows with blessings! Thank-you, God for our many blessings, and forgive me for not always seeing them and for lacking an attitude of gratitude. I am so blessed! Thank-you, God!
