4For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. 

Holy Spirit, I need some hope today.  You know how my son is struggling.  His future looks so dark.  Thank-you for Your Word and its promises and it truly does bring hope now.  I know his future can be so bright, but he needs Your Word, and he is rejecting it now.  Help him to know You Lord and surrender to You and learn the wonder of servant-hood.  How is he to have hope when I seem to lose hope and I have Your Word alive inside me?  Lord, help us all to endure, and take in Your Words of encouragement so we may have hope. *Romans15*
