“So be strong and courageous, all you 
who put your hope in the Lord!”  Psalm 31:24

My hope is in you, Lord! I trust you and am leaning on you for my strength. Because of your unending love, my fears for tomorrow are being washed away! Thank you for always walking by my side and guiding me in the right direction. You are my God and I am praising you! In Jesus’ name, amen.

Leaning on Him, 


  1. How ironic that I read that verse of Scripture this morning. When we place or hope in God, we know it is in good hands.

    Found you at W2W, where we are neighbors.

  2. You are my God and I am praising you! - Oh Yes!! Lovely prayer, Joan. Heart Hugs, Shelly <3

  3. Thanks for coming by, Dayle! Psalm 31:24 is my scripture focus this month, so what better way to start than to pray it? I love the strength and courage God give us!

  4. Oh yes...my hope is in Him and that gives me the courage to step into the future!

    Blessings, Joan

    Oh Joan- just yesterday God said He needed me to be strong and courageous- and here you are confirming His word to me- oh- but I am such a wimp !!!!

  6. A beautiful verse to start my day sweet sister! Strength and hope are what get me through my day;
    brings me joy and assurance!! Love you! Have a Thankful Thursday! ♥


  7. What I am seeing in this verse today is this -

    When it comes to the way the Lord works, strength and courage do not come from power - they come from HOPE! Clinging to the victory that He most assuredly won for us!


  8. My hope is in Him. Always in Him. So grateful He is always by our side. Always love your prayers, Joan. Wishing you a beautiful weekend. Much love. {Hugs}

  9. He always fills us with courage and hope when we look to Him! I am so grateful!

    Love, Joan
