Powerful Words

You will notice in today’s poem (written by Rose Hill’s brother, Everett, as he reflected on Psalm 46) an oft-repeated phrase, “I am”. This is not only the title and name by which God introduced Himself to Moses and the people of Israel in Exodus 3:14, but it was and remains a present-tense statement for […]

Trust In God’s Word Equals Hope

Hope, one of the anchors of the Christian life, is deeply rooted in the same garden as faith. The Psalmist sums it up in 119:81, “… I hope in Your word” and here, the word that is translated “hope” from the Hebrew language, means to wait, and implies to be patient. Looking at hope in […]
