Romans 15:13 - May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
Hebrews 6:17-20 - So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fats tot he hope set before us. We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest after the order of Melchizedek.
Dear God, help me to remember that the troubles of this life are temporary and pale in comparison to the hope, the promise, of heaven that You have given me because of Your adoption of me as a daughter. I may not always have an easy time of doing that on my own. Heaven surely will be wonderful as compared to this present life, but I do want to experience the blessings of this life as well. Thank You. In Jesus' Name, Amen!
