Hope

“Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And has shed His own blood for my soul.”
– Horatio G. Spafford

Eternal bliss, not contingent on temporal circumstances.

Many Causes for Rejoicing

“Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand.”
– Proverbs 19:21

“For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.”
– Psalm 84:11

“Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him! Oh, fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him have no lack! The young lions suffer want and hunger; but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.”
– Psalm 34:8-10
