"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house." Matthew 5:14-15

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it." Matthew 13:45-46

HOPE

It’s a Holly Jolly Blog HopI put my hope in You, Lord - Psalm 38:15a

Now, Lord, what do I wait for?
My hope is in You. - Psalm 39:7


Israel, put your hope in the Lord.
For there is faithful love with the Lord,
and with Him is redemption in abundance.
And He will redeem Israel
from all its sins. - Psalm 130:7-8


For I know the plans I have for you”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. You will call to Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. - Jeremiah 29: 11-12

Because of the Lord’s faithful love
we do not perish,

for His mercies never end.
23 They are new every morning;
great is Your faithfulness!
24 I say: The Lord is my portion,
therefore I will put my hope in Him. - Lamentations 3:22-24



OUR HOPE IS IN THE LORD. HE IS THE REASON WE CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS.
