The Beauty of Hope

And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. Romans 5:3-5

Welcome to this week's carnival of beauty. I hope you are inspired and encouraged by our three essays today revealing the beauty of hope.

Michal writes about the hope she and her family found when God took them down a path that no one would want to go, in Hope is a Journey.

Susanna writes that the sure and living hope of a believer is a thing of beauty and noy something known to this world.

And I chime in with a post on our reason for hope: Jesus Christ and His love for us.

Thank you for hosting. I needed your post today too. We always intellectually know God loves us, but it's hard for me to sometimes "feel" it. Reading His words, especially the ones you have chosen, help me to feel Him. I thought it was interesting we both thought of Romans 5 and the same song, "My hope is built on nothing less". Great minds think alike. :)

God bless you today.
