for your soul!
Spera in Deo is Latin for Hope in
To the Chief Musician. A Contemplation of the sons of
Korah. As the deer pants for the water brooks, So
pants my soul for You, O God. My soul thirsts for
God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear
before God? My tears have been my food day and night,
While they continually say to me, "Where is your
God?" When I remember these things, I pour out my
soul within me. For I used to go with the multitude;
I went with them to the house of God, With the voice
of joy and praise, With a multitude that kept a
pilgrim feast. Why are you cast down, O my soul? And
why are you disquieted within me? Hope in
God, for I shall yet praise Him For the help
of His countenance.
Psalm 42:1-5 NKJV
Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the
heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel,
confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable
things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we
might have strong consolation, who have fled for
refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us. This
hope we have as an anchor of the soul,
both sure and steadfast, and which enters the
Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has
entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest
forever according to the order of Melchizedek.
Hebrews 6:7-19 NKJV
Welcome! We are glad you came by to visit us. This
place is all about Hope. The hope we have in God
through faith in His Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ, as
He is revealed in Scripture. Now that last part,
as He is revealed in Scripture, is a very
important part. Don't skip over it. So many who
call themselves Christians today are not very
familiar with the Bible...in fact, a growing majority
are woefully Biblically illiterate! We would like to
do our part in some small way to change that, which
is why this site exists - to bring together resources
for Bible study and encourage everyone who stops by
here to get more familiar with God's Word. After
all, it's Your Heavenly Father's letter to
YOU. How might He feel if you never even
bothered to read it?
Biblical illiteracy is running rampant in the United
States! We recently asked our visitors to take an
unscientific poll and evaluate their own Bible
literacy. About sixty percent felt they were
Biblically literate; twenty five percent admitted to
illiteracy; twelve percent weren't sure and about
three percent said "who cares?". (God cares! That's
