Letterpress Blocks Dayspring HOPE







Hope.. we all have hope for something. I hope the rain holds off. I hope the kids do well with school. I hope for good test results. Hope with a question mark.. Hope?
My pastor has talked a lot about this Hope? The worldly hope that is uncertain, wishful, and given to concern and worry. We can use this hope for small things like hoping for the weather or a particular gift to come in the mail. We can also have this hope for larger things like hope that my grandfather comes out of surgery alright, or hope that the kids are safe driving to basketball practice. This hope alone though is hollow and really not the hope we want.

There is a hope however that is without question, and that is the Hope of Jesus. Hope in Him is to hope without question. To hope in his promises, his Word, his eternity is without question. We can pray and have hope and trust in our Savior for the outcome to be in His will.




This is why I chose to create the word HOPE with the new letterpress blocks from Dayspring.
It is also why we are choosing to name our upcoming baby's middle name Hope. The same hope without a question mark as we teach her in the ways of the Lord and show her the hope she can have in him.


 
Psalm 71: 5 "For You are my hope, O lord God; You are my trust from my youth."
