Let Hope Arise // Glimpses Link Up — 24 Comments

    • Thanks so awesome Debbie. Twins are so fun. Our Pastor’s daughter had back-to-back twins. I cannot imagine!

  1. I love those verses! They are so comforting!
    As I look back at all the trials that the Lord has brought me through and all He has taught me along the way, I’ve come to realize that our understanding of “good” is often not the same as God’s definition.
    He is the Creator. His thoughts are not our thoughts nor His ways our ways. We would be content to play in the shallow water forever, but He wants to take us on deep sea dives where He is our Guide and Protector. We can content ourselves to have Him as a figurehead on the bow of our ship; He wants to BE our ship, our ark of safety. Our minds are so finite; He has such great and wonderful plans in store for us!
    Bless you, sister! Congrats on the birth of your amazing grandson! <3

    • This is so true Ruth. God Himself is good to His very core. So everything He does is good. Have a blessed weekend!

  2. Congratulations on your new grandson, Barbie! Such a priceless treasure! Enjoy those precious cuddles!

    Thank you for this hope-filled post. I can identify with this – “Sometimes we may look at the bumps in the road and the detours in our lives as contrary to the goodness of God.” It’s so important that we fix our eyes on His never-failing goodness instead of all the detours, right? Love and hugs to you!

  3. Holding on to this truth can get me through so many things: “He’s a good God and He delights to give good gifts to His children.” So grateful that God is a hope giver!

  4. I love your weekly glimpses round ups Barbie.

    I’m reminded of the Psalm that says when God arises, our enemies are scattered. Wonderful truth to dwell upon!

    Congrats on your latest grand baby! So happy for you!

    • Thank you Lillian! My new grandson is such a joy. Truly grateful for all of the little gifts God brings my way.

    • Yes Bev, of course I will pray. I’m believing for restoration and healing of this relationship. I cannot imagine. Hugs!

  5. Hi Barbie! Congratulations on your newborn grandbaby! I also am thankful for hot fudge sundaes…those are my favorite flavor. Love your quote cards this week too. Blessings to you!

  6. In my 60’s now and I can also say that life turned out far differently than I planned for myself. And yet, God has shown Himself faithful through it all. God’s story in us is powerful to impact those who need hope, and for that I am thankful.
    Blessings to you this Memorial Day.
