This was here right after she was born. literally.. she came out perfect at 10:12 pm on September 22 don’t you think. She was born to my beautiful twin sister and her hubby! Meet Hope Lynn Humbert.
In case you need to see another picture of HOPE
Look at this perfect little package who doesn’t even fit in her clothes…. she’s soo tiny!
Can you tell Aunt Nenn is completely in love. We are going to get into all kinds of mischief together. That’s the best part of being an aunt. Spoiling them rotten. Don’t worry I am still spoiling my little man alex rotten to.
So anyways I have been thinking about that word HOPE alot lately.
I had a client recently tell me that she had stopped hoping. She had stopped hoping in God… stopped hoping in life. Stopped hoping that her desires would be fulfilled.
And as she killed off hope little by little,
I could see in her eyes
She killed off her soul to.
God created us to hope
To hope for heaven
To hope for HIM
To hope for healing
To hope for our hearts desires
To hope for holiness
To hope for … you fill in your blank
But with hoping always comes waiting.
And it’s in the waiting that I think we get scared.
We listen to the voice of the enemy and lose hope.
We kill off our soul and stop coming alive
That’s how the numbness of life seeps in.
Fear in the waiting outweighs hope.
It causes us to do crazy things.. to come up with crazy ideas.
Losing hope in God’s promises caused Abraham to find a maidservant and try to fulfill God’s promise of a son through her. And this was a DISASTER
Losing hope in God’s goodness caused David to go after basheba
Naomi to travel to moab and encounter her deepest life’s drought
