A new description of hope came to me this morning:  Confident expectancy.
With that in mind, here is a poem:

Because God is good;
Because He loves us so;
We have every confidence;
We truly know
Every perfect gift
is presented to us by Him,
Until our expectancy grows brighter,
Never becoming dim.

Trusting in God’s love;
Walking in His great light;
We receive His providence;
All that is right
As His dear children;
We are treasured and blessed each day;
Until we see His glory
And reflect Jesus in every way.

oh God is our Hope;
His faithfulness is true;
We respond with gratitude
In all we do.
Expressions of joy
Are like streams that flow from our souls;
Bubbling up in our delight,
Songs of praise and hope that ever grows.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
