Filled With Hope

I am listening (again) to the music from Steven Curtis Chapman's latest CD, beautywillrise, as I write this. I cannot adequately convey what these songs mean to me...listening to my own thoughts and hopes and questions mirrored in such a beautiful way.

This morning during my quiet time, I was directed by my Bible study to read Romans 15:13.

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. " (NIV)

When I turned to it and read it, my heart actually leaped inside my chest, and I felt as if I might burst I was so encouraged and filled with hope. I realize now that as I signed off of yesterday's post, I had the seed of this verse growing inside me--and then to see it actually written on the page this morning was overwhelming (in the best sort of way) indeed.

May your day be filled with hope.
