Hebrews 11: 1 & 3
It is to strengthen my already firm faith that I create this space.
I am Hopeannfaith…actually she lives deep within me. The me, people don’t see, transformed by the Word of God, almost daily now. I cannot say that this transformation has always been pleasant or without pain. I can say, though, that every battled step forward has been worth it.
I determine to be what the Word of God says that I am.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
It is my Spirit that knows this very well. In this verse the translation is incorrect. The word soul means Spirit, here
. However the Spirit and the soul are definately two different things. Biblically, the New Testament definition of soul is: the mind.
The world would have us believe it is the soul that remains eternal, not so. The soul is our mind, our human ability to reason. I understand, if you do not check this out for yourself, just do it using the Hebrew
definition, I did.
It is my Spirit that knows God. The very Spirit of God that rises up when I wander away from God. It is my Spirit that changed when I received Jesus
as the Lord
of my life. It is my Spirit that fell to it’s knees when I received my salvation.
So here I imagine, I visualize within my Spirit what I hope to achieve on my journey.
These images are photographed, created, and borrowed so that I may look outside the mire of my past and upbringing, to the things of beauty I desire to better please my Father God.
God’s promise to me, to all of us is this:
John 16: 23-24
23 In that day you will not ask me for anything. I tell you the truth, my Father will give you anything you ask for in my name. 24 Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy will be the fullest possible joy.
Victory over the World
So I keep this photographic and written Hope Chest, lined with those things I seek to create in myself, my life and even my family, to glorify my Father in Heaven.
Images of my: Health
More….. Including those things I have not dreamed of , yet!
The things I hope for; made manifest by faith. Those things unwrapped by my inner child. The gifts from my Father God.
One must see themself redeemed and restored, because that is what God sees. I seek that vision of myself…
