(Lamentations 3:19-20 NLT) “The thought of my suffering and homelessness is bitter beyond words. I will never forget this awful time, as I grieve over my loss.”
(Lamentations 3:21 NLT) “Yet I still dare to hope.”
(Lamentations 3:21-23 NLT) “Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this: The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.”
✓ God is my source.
(Lamentations 3:24 NLT) “I say to myself, “The Lord is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!””
✓ God is my strength.
(Lamentations 3:24 NLT) “The Lord is good to those who depend on him, to those who search for him.”
✓ God is my salvation.
(Lamentations 3:25-26 NLT) “So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the Lord.”
(Lamentations 3:27 NLT) “And it is good for people to submit at an early age to the yoke of his discipline.”

Surrender To HOPE
1. Healing
(Luke 9:1-2 NIV) “When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.”
2. Opportunity
(1 Corinthians 16:9 NASB) “For a wide door for effective service has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.”
3. Protection
(Jeremiah 29:11 NIV) “’For I know the plans (boundaries) I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans (boundaries) to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’"
4. Eternity
(Colossians 3:1-2 NLT) “Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.”
