Elizabeth “Ellie” Hope Carter arrived four minutes before the clock struck midnight on January 8, 2014. For the last nine months our family, friends, and faith community prayed day and night with the kind of hope that would not quit.
It’s the hope described in Jeremiah 29:11-13:
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
It’s the hope seen in Ellie’s first month of life. Take a look at the video: Meet Ellie
It’s the hope which God graciously gives you and I to move forward with anticipation for each day, regardless of our circumstances.
May you have this kind of hope today.
