May the God of green hope fill you up with joy, fill you up with peace, so that your believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit, will brim over with hope! (Romans 15:13, The Message)
Green hope is what makes us thrive. It’s not just for those already living successfully who pump out heaping baskets of fruitfulness. It’s not for the strong and capable among us. Green hope is for the empty in need of a fresh filling of joy and peace. It’s for those who believe with their lives not just their words.
This is what green hope looks like ….
Of all the places for a seed to sprout and take root and grow, why here? There would never be abundant soil, the rain would quickly flow away from this tree, and the heat off the rocks would always be intense.
Of all the places for God to water and nourish a seedling, why not here? It’s roots would dig deep and be tied to a rock, it would be sheltered from harsh weather, and it would always rely on the day-to-day care of the Master Gardener.
Where has the Master planted you right now? Are you thriving there? If you allow Him to tend your heart, invite His care into your life, and trust Him to protect you each day you will brim over with hope.
It’s our desire to lead you into a deeper understanding of God through study in His Word, reflection on His Spirit at work around us, and being part of a community of faithful women who love Jesus and one another. Thrive and flourish with us at Titus Women this year!
