Trust. Hope. Rejoice.

Trust Hope Rejoice, by Elizabeth Johnson

“Life is hard. It hurts. It costs.

It brings sorrow, and grief. It travels through dark places, up steep windy trails, across rock-strewn paths. It fights through the waves of turmoil, the gloomy rains of uncertainty.

There’s a lot of difficulty in this life. A lot of hard things.

And yet, our lives don’t have to be characterized by those dark places, by those heavy rains or angry waves. In fact, as Christians, there’s something else entirely that should characterize us.”

-from Trust. Hope. Rejoice.


Trust. Hope. Rejoice.

Because that’s what our lives should be characterized by, if we truly believe in Jesus Christ. That’s what our hearts should be growing towards, day after day, as we get in the Word and walk in the Spirit. That’s the testimony we should leave with others, no matter what difficulties we’re wading through at the time.

And each of these things is possible for us. For you, and for me. God’s Word gives us all that we need for life and godliness.

That includes the hard times of life. That includes when we feel like doubting, or when we feel hopeless. That includes when we’re flirting with discouragement, or floundering in despair.

His Word gives us everything that we need to trust Him, hope in Him, and rejoice in Him.

And so I offer you this short book, with the prayer that it will encourage you in the midst of hard times. I pray that it will strengthen your faith, increase your steadfast hope in Christ, and help you find true joy even amidst grievous trials.

Trust. Hope. Rejoice. contains 30 page-length devotionals to encourage you, as you walk struggle through life’s difficulties. Many of the devotionals are excerpts from this blog, but there are a few new entries as well. And each entry has a short Scripture reading, because God’s Word is more perfect and powerful than any of my words could ever be.
