Salt: hope

It was my turn to choose the theme this time and this is what I've said on the Salt faith challenge blog:

Our theme this time is

Hope

We are living in uncertain times, so it's understandable if folk feel that there is no hope. As Christians, we have hope because of what Jesus did for us at Calvary. This hope isn't an airy-fairy 'maybe' for the future, but it is a certainty that we can claim now.

In our church we have recently been privileged to hear a series of sermons on hope, which is what prompted me to choose this topic now. On Sunday we sang the song which is on my LO, which I feel sums up our Christian hope:

Our confidence is in the Lord
The source of our salvation
Rest is found in Him alone
The Author of creation
We will not fear the evil day
Because we have a refuge
In every circumstance we say
Our hope is built on Jesus

The verse from Hebrews 6:19 says it much better than I could: 'We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.'

We pray that you may have the joy of experiencing this hope for yourself.

We would love you to show us your interpretations of this theme.


For my LO I used an All My Memories background paper called Carefree. The stripy backgrounds of the anchor and our photo are AMM serenity stripe and the song and the verse from Hebrews were printed on the plain sides of Chatterbox Scrapbook walls varsity stripem and denim urban stripe. The green letters of HOPE are thickers vinyl.





Please pop over to Salt to see the beautiful creations of the rest of the team.
