Kate said disappoint
Whew! Have I ever been? You?
I’m sure this is one thing we ALL have in common. Disappointment.
- The failure of my first marriage
- The non-successful journey of being traditionally published in the 90’s
- The unsuccessful sale of our home in 2005
- A hideous murder of someone we loved.
- A divorce
- A miserable marriage
- Hm…the list can go on and on
I’m sure you have your own list.
It took me years…
To understand Romans 5.5
Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
Now that years have passed I understand. Real GODLY Hope will never disappoint – in each of my listed six I can see redemption. The hope of heaven. And, friends, THAT is what real HOPE looks like. Heaven. In God’s economy, this earth life is but a vapor. But, Kingdom life?
Heavenly Hope will never disappoint. If we have placed our Hope in the saving work of Jesus Christ on Calvary’s cross, His burial, His resurrection, and His soon return…
We can never be disappointed. Heaven is some place I expect to be when this earth life is over.
Now, that’s hope, which will not disappoint!
