A silver lining is defined as, “A silver lining is a sign of hope or a positive aspect in an otherwise negative situation”.
We may live in difficult times and there seems to be no limit to the dark clouds forming sometimes, but God has indeed Blessed us with many signs of hope for “His Blessings are new every morning”.
From Bible verses to signs of hope in our personal lives such as a beautiful sunrise or a hug from a much loved individual, Hope Lives In Our Lives 😊
Below are just a few Bible verses to hold on to when the day is long 😊

“There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.” – Proverbs 23:18

“And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.” – 1 Peter 5:10

A word about Daniel 12:3 (above). We all have a choice to make. We can be wise and shine in these dark times, or we can refuse to do so. It’s a choice given to us by God Himself. We can and should seek Hope in God, because truly He is our Hope, but we can also offer Hope to another. It’s our choice 😊
