hope continually...


had a real nice wrap to my week with a solid sunday.
Mr. Red Cafe was calling my name so i caved & went back again with della and rob.
we ate till we couldn't move which then forced us to just sit 
and take in each other's company.
the subject of "trust" and "hope" have been resonating a lot with me the past few weeks.
reminding myself to surrender everything i have to the Lord as i have a tendency
to try and take over my own plans for the future.
but also feeling super encouraged by friends and family- even through moments of doubt.
and moments of "where are you God?"
meditating on these verses this week:

But I will hope continually and will praise you yet more and more.
Psalm 71:14

Is not your fear of God your confidence,
and the integrity of your ways your hope?
Job 4:6

Not only that, 
but we rejoice in our sufferings, 
knowing that suffering produces endurance,
and endurance produces character, 
and character produces hope,
and hope does not put us to shame, 
because God's love has been poured into our hearts
through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
Romans 5:3-5
