I am so happy to be a prisoner of HOPE... It does not work if you stay mad or unforgiving...Get busy being YOU.
You cannot BE someone else, they are already taken!
The way out of any prison is to become a prisoner of HOPE! God then restores, repurposes, reveals, the good things in your life! Double blessings do not come to the double minded...... You must apply the stand of HOPE!
Show people you have changed, live the life, do the work!!
James 1vs7-8 ....Colossians 3vs 1...SET YOUR MIND!!
Isaiah 61vs1-7 The Message
The Spirit of God, the Master, is on me
because God anointed me.
He sent me to preach good news to the poor,
heal the heartbroken,
Announce freedom to all captives,
pardon all prisoners.
God sent me to announce the year of his grace—
a celebration of God’s destruction of our enemies—
and to comfort all who mourn,
To care for the needs of all who mourn in Zion,
give them bouquets of roses instead of ashes,
Messages of joy instead of news of doom,
a praising heart instead of a languid spirit.
Rename them “Oaks of Righteousness”
planted by God to display his glory.
They’ll rebuild the old ruins,
raise a new city out of the wreckage.
They’ll start over on the ruined cities,
take the rubble left behind and make it new.
You’ll hire outsiders to herd your flocks
and foreigners to work your fields,
But you’ll have the title “Priests of God,”
honored as ministers of our God.
You’ll feast on the bounty of nations,
you’ll bask in their glory.
Because you got a double dose of trouble
and more than your share of contempt,
Your inheritance in the land will be doubled
and your joy go on forever.
Job 42vs10 The Message
After Job had interceded for his friends, God restored his fortune—and then doubled it! All his brothers and sisters and friends came to his house and celebrated. They told him how sorry they were, and consoled him for all the trouble God had brought him. Each of them brought generous housewarming gifts.
Hope is powerful and REAL, but you have to make your mind up and DO NOT CHANGE IT!!
