The Power of Hope
Dear Beloved Friends,
There is a power in God that will set our hearts aflame where we become living witnesses of God’s great love. This is the power of Holy Spirit— It is His Dunamis Power—Life Energizing Resurrection Power! We are clothed in His power and it always available to those who have been filled!
Recently on an airplane I had the opportunity to pray for a young man. He was a line-man on his way to help restore power on the East Coast that had been devastated by a storm. The Lord healed him and took the pain. The young man began to tell the man next to him. He was quite friendly and had a powerful voice, so many around us were hearing his testimony! To God be the glory! Even when we aren’t at our best, the Lord is in us and will move through us with His Power if we let Him.
Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. 1 John 4:17
We are called to give hope, live in hope and build hope. Romans 15:13 says:
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
The power of our precious Holy Spirit causes us to thrive and flourish in hope. The enemy tries to steal our hope. Sometimes life can leave us broken-hearted and shattered whether by our own choices or those of others. If we look to Him in these times, the waves of despair can wash us up on to the shores of God’s grace. God’s grace really is more than sufficient to meet our need for healing and clarity. In every life circumstance we have opportunities to discover new levels of God’s hope. How we choose to engage in these opportunities affects more than our own destinies. Our lives are intertwined with each other and how we connect or disconnect can change the course of our divine purpose.
Trials can forge greater joy into our serving the Lord. As we learn to overcome disappointment we have the opportunity to enjoy the sweetness of loving others. Losses have a way of causing us to really ask the Lord what matters. I continue to discover that it is our hearts that matter. We get to discover the heart of our Father and in that He reveals that our hearts and the heart of others really matters most. Satan is after our hearts to destroy them. God is after hearts our to renew, heal, re-align and empower them. He wants to give us more of His heart until His heart becomes our home…His Hope our abiding place.
I feel The Lord is replacing every root of disappointment with living water and a tree of HOPE!
The Lord alone is our radiant hope and we trust in Him with all our hearts. His wrap-around presence will strengthen us. As we trust, we rejoice with an uncontained joy, flowing from Yahweh! Now let Your love and steadfast kindness overshadow us continually. For we trust and we wait upon You! Psalm 33:20 TPT
The Father’s love is filled with life-giving hope and is more powerful than any destruction from the dark-side. His love is The Light that cannot be put out. His Love is fueling His Lovelution with His Fresh Oil of Hope!

I am looking forward to our upcoming Lovelution opportunities. I will be going to S. Africa August 22-September 3. I love the people of S. Africa! I love what I get to partner with Our Father in as I go as His Lovelutionary! Martha will be joining me. I had a dream about this trip and I have great expectation for the healing power of God to manifest in every place He sends us. We can’t wait to bring more gifts to give the children of Weppener and beyond!
September 22-October 8, I will return to Israel…Lord willing. I know this will be a great opportunity to also heal and love the ones He sends us to.
In December, we will return to Reciffe, Brazil to be with Shores of Grace. We want to bring the Spirit of Love by sharing Christmas and God’s Hope.
I will share more about our Lovelution journeys in upcoming updates.
Your partnership in love, prayer and financial support for our Lovelution Ministry Trips is deeply appreciated! Thank you for standing with us! Together we can make a net of love that will catch the heart and souls of the ones the Lord has prepared.
