True and Lasting Hope
a John 14:1
devotional

Jesus said, “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in Me” — John 14:1

True and lasting hope,
real and healthy optimism,
doesn’t come from confidence
in ourselves or other people.
How could it? We, and they,
often fail or fall short.

True and lasting hope,
real and healthy optimism,
doesn’t come from confidence
in the future, in advancement.
How could it? History proves
not all change is progress.

True and lasting hope,
real and healthy optimism,
comes from confidence
in our mighty loving Father.
He does not fail or fall short;
His plans are always perfect.

Those who put their hope,
their confidence, in Him
will soar the wind like eagles.
