Hope Unseen

Do not walk around with anger, frustration and malice in your heart. For I am doing a work in you that you cannot see.

m stretching you in your faith.

For hope that is seen is no hope at all.

Hope and trust for that which you do not yet have. Wait patiently without grumbling and murmuring and you shall see the glory of God as He blesses your life!

"In my distress I called to the Lord, and He answered me. From the depths of the grave I called for help and you listened to my cry. You hurled me into the deep, into the very heart of the seas, and the currents swirled about me; all your waves and breakers swept over me." I said, "I have been banished from your sight; yet I will look again toward your holy temple."

"The engulfing waters threatened me, the deep surrounded me; seaweed was wrapped around my head. To the roots of the mountains I sank down; the earth beneath barred me in forever. But you brought my life up from the pit, O Lord my God. When my life was ebbing away, I remembered you, Lord, and my prayer rose to you, to your holy temple."
Jonah 2:1-7

"Do not be afraid; you will not suffer shame. Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated. You will forget the shame of your youth and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood. For your maker is your husband the Lord Almighty is his name the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer: he is called the God of all earth." Isaiah 54:4-5


  1. Amen Lisa, we should keep faith and hope no matter how things look. We serve a faithful God and he is in control; and never fails his children! I just also want to thank you for your visit and gracious comment. Have a blessed week!

  2. I love the verses you shared Lisa. I seem to grow most in the midst of affliction when I have no place to go but to my Savior's arms.

    Happy New Year!

    Blessings and love,

  3. "For I am doing a work in you that you cannot see" - Those words are so, so encouraging and just what I needed.

    Thank you for this refreshing reminder, Lisa.
