But I will hope continually, And will praise You yet more and more. Psalm 71:14 (NKJV)

Hope is a fragile thing. (tweet this)

Hope is hard to wrap your heart around. Just when I think that I’ve got it, that hope has found a place right there next to Jesus I begin to feel hopeless. 

I guess that’s why I write so much about hope on ilovedevotionals.com because I know that most days hope is what I need to see tomorrow. I imagine many of you feel the same way. 


One thing I’ve learnt in the three years since Xylon’s cancer diagnosis is that when the rest of the world is saying there’s no hope, Jesus is standing there saying, “They’re wrong.”

When everyone else is questioning if Jesus really cares about the hard things we’re going through, I listen for his voice declaring, “Don’t listen to them; just trust me.”

When everyone else is saying, “You have no hope!” Jesus is saying, “I am your hope!” (tweet this)

As I listen to the whispers of Jesus I find hope rising in unexpected places. 

If you need a whisper of hope today may you find it in one of these devotionals: (tweet this)
