The Promise of Hope

The Bible is full of wonderful passages that offer promises of blessings and hope. It’s up to you and me to receive them. Here are a few I wrote down yesterday. I’ve personalized the words.


The LORD my God is with me,

he is mighty to save.

He will take great delight in me,

he will quiet me with his love,

he will rejoice over me with singing. ( Zeph 3:17)


For he will command his angels concerning me

to guard me in all my ways;

they will lift me up in their hands,

so that I will not strike my foot against a stone. (Ps 91:11,12)


Praise the LORD, O my soul;

all my inmost being, praise his holy name.

Praise the LORD, O my soul,

and forget not all his benefits —

who forgives all your sins

and heals all your diseases,

who redeems your life from the pit

and crowns me with love and compassion,

who satisfies your desires with good things

so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (Ps 103:1-6)


But as for me, I will always have hope;

I will praise you more and more. (Ps 71:14)


Father to the fatherless, a defender of widows,

is God in his holy dwelling.

God sets the lonely in families. (Ps 68:5,6)


Satisfy me in the morning with your unfailing love,

that I may sing for joy and be glad all my days. (Ps 90:14)


You crown the year with your bounty,

and my carts overflow with abundance. (Ps 65:11)


The eternal God is my refuge,

and underneath are the everlasting arms. (Deut 33:27)


About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
