Five-Minute-Friday-4-300x300I’m joining Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt. Five minutes. No editing. Lots of women. All of us writing on that same word.

Today the word prompt is … Hope.

I read the word prompt earlier and thought, “I will come back to it later.” In the midst of reading, I found myself humming but did not pay attention as I continued to read and do my study.

But then I stopped and listened to the words in my head, realizing the song I was humming ….

“My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.”

The word prompt had done its job, directing my thoughts where God would have me to focus.

Hope, according to is “a person or thing in which expectations are centered“.

And when my expectations, my hope, are centered on the Person of Jesus Christ, it is then I stand on solid ground. It is there I find unchanging grace. It is then my anchor holds no matter how large the swells of life.


Hope is not an emotion or feeling.

Hope is a Person.

“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.” (Hebrews 10:23, NIV)



Today I am joining … Five Minute Friday and Faith Filled Friday and Fellowship Friday and Grace & Truth .
