Our Never Ending Hope
God is a God of everlasting love and hope,
Even in times when our pain is so deep we can hardly cope,
He is always beside us, holding tightly to our hand,
His love for us outnumbers every single grain of sand.
His everlasting hope is extended freely,
Though at times it can be hard for us to see.
Even when our world crashes all around us,
He will lift us up; all we must do is trust.
When we struggle to understand the why,
He will always catch every single tear we cry.
He lifts up our face and looks into our eyes,
Saying, “Your pain matters to Me, no matter its size.”
His comforting arms wrap gently around us,
And all He is asking is that we will trust.
Though trials and tribulation befall us,
He will be by our side for eternity, past the day we return to dust.
In the days when we feel we simply cannot go on,
His loving voice will bring joy and fill us with song.
His sweet words say to us, “In this world you will have tribulation,”
“But behold, I have overcome – I have won.”
When our dreams crash to pieces on the floor,
And we can’t see where God could possibly be opening a door,
He has something so much greater in store for our lives,
That is a beautiful Hope, and it will never die.
Our Savior draws near to us in our pain,
Our job is to trust in Him always, without wane.
So next time you feel crushed by the pain in your life,
Take heart, every challenge we face has been conquered by Christ.

A Special Blessing from a Friend
Greetings everyone! Today I was so surprised to find a large package in the mail addressed to… me? Yes! I recently had the pleasure of entering Sarah Faith’s giveaway over at her amazing blog, The Journeys of Faith, and I was blown away when I found out that I had won!
Sarah Faith has such a beautiful, Christian blog filled with fun and inspiring posts! She posts about her running in different races such as marathons, (which is always so inspiring to me!) she also posts about her life, amazing Christian encouragement posts and so much more! You definitely should check out her blog at The Journeys of Faith. It would bless her so much to have you stop by!
Thank you Sarah Faith, for the extraordinary gift you gave me! It was such a blessing to me and I am so grateful not just for it, but for your amazing friendship. God bless you, dear friend!
Greeting Cards for a Cause
Greetings, everyone! I am writing to share with you all about a very special opportunity CLM columnist Anna P. and I were able to participate in recently!
An amazing young lady named Moriah Simonowich hosted a Valentine Card Challenge 2018 where she was giving readers an opportunity to make greeting cards to be taken on a mission trip to Uganda to be given to child prisoners this summer through a ministry called Sixty Feet. Anna and I both are very passionate about Christian missions, especially to Africa, and we both really enjoy card making too so this was so much fun for us to participate in!
Anna and I made 25 greeting cards each, of all different colors and sizes. Every cover features the words, "Jesu Okwagala" which means "Jesus loves you" in the native Ugandan language of Lugandan, and on the inside John 3:16 is written out. We both had an amazing time making these cards, and we pray God uses them in mighty ways to encourage, uplift and bring the children receiving them to Christ.
Above is a photograph of the greeting cards I created. I pray they will make a big impact and bring pure joy to the children receiving them, not just temporal joy, but lasting joy that comes from dedicating their lives to Christ.
Please check out Anna’s amazing blog post about the cards she created here. Many thanks to her for making such a wonderful difference in this world through her talents! Please be in prayer for the children in Uganda who will be receiving these cards this summer! Please pray God will open their hearts to His true Hope that they can have when they believe in Him, and that the cards will encourage and uplift their young hearts!
