This morning I decided to open my Bible and search for a verse that would comfort me. I searched aimlessly in the Psalms to try to find a verse that gave me some sort of relief or pushed me towards cheerful.

I found some verses that spoke of God being a refuge in times of trouble. Some that spoke of him looking out for us. I found some verses that confused me because sometimes people DON'T actually get the desires of their heart when they ask. And then I remembered a verse that I LOVE. I like to share it with people when times seem hopeless.
 13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.  - Romans 15:13
I love that verse. I love the words JOY and PEACE. And, I love the word HOPE. This time, though, I noticed the last part about overflowing with hope.

And, that is what I'd like to do -- overflow with hope.
