Today is Thursday, May 12th, 2022; Karen's Korner #4658

When I am in the kitchen rattling around, I can count on my dog Rocky, to come running. He looks up at me with pleading eyes. Maybe I might give him a drink of water, some food, or a treat. Whether he needs it or not. 

I would describe his intentions in one word:  HOPE! Hope that I might 'listen' to his silent plea. Sometimes he needs a drink or food. Many times he doesn't. While I don't always give it to Rocky, he always has hope!

I wonder if that compares to our asking our Heavenly Father for something. He wants us to come running to Him. Because of His Love for us, He gives us what we seek. Sometimes He may not because the things we might be asking for aren't the best answer. 

Our job? Always have HOPE!

According to Bible web site (, there 180 references to 'hope' in the Bible. 

"Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
my hope comes from Him.

Truly He is my rock and my salvation;
He is my fortress.
I will not be shaken.

~ Psalm 62:5,6 NIV


God, help us today to have hope for whatever we might be facing! Thank You that You are our Rock and we don't need to be shaken!
