Hope in the Darkness - Ruth L. Snyder

We live in a world where darkness abounds. It's easy to get discouraged, until we remember...GOD...

  • God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. (I John 1:5)

  • God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved (John 3:17)

  • God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)

  • God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly placesin Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 2:4-7)

2015 has been one of the most difficult years of my life, but through it I have come to know God in a deeper, more personal way. Maybe your horizon is dark too. As we enter 2016, let's trust our loving Heavenly Father to walk with us each step of the way. When we are tempted to worry, let's stop and pray: "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you." I Peter 5:7

Happy New Year!


  1. Beautifully compiled, Ruth, and your memes compliment the scriptures so well. No matter what's going on, we can trust our Lord. May we all take that knowledge and internalize it, so it becomes second nature! May your 2016 be one of Light, Ruth!

  2. Excellent verses of hope and encouragement. May we all grow in trust and dependence on Him (less worry, more hope) in 2016. Thanks Ruth.

  3. This is a beautiful post! In our trials we come to know the faithfulness of our God. May God show Himself strong on your behalf in 2016!
