Setting my hope in His grace

This scripture really encouraged me this morning...

1 Peter 1:13 "Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set you hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ."

Our hope can't be put in anything except knowing Jesus more and more. There are endless depths of knowledge, grace, love, and power to be explored in relationship with the Lord. And I'm choosing to set my mind on Him today. My hope is His grace!

Dear Jack,
Sorry I just noticed that I posted this same exact note on last years blog so I didnt think that you would notice it. Here is my original message... please read it and consider it because I have been praying for 1-2 years for a moment that I am going to explain......
Your Band has been such an inspiration to me. I went to the concert in evansville when you all sang with Casting Crowns and John Waller. I had bunches of fun. I (sorta) got to meet the band but I didnt get the chance for us to talk and (really) meet you all. I have been praying since the release of your first album that the band could meet with my friends, the church family, and me. I have adored you guys and have put my life in a position to go the "opposite way". I found your blog and thought to myself... this would be a perfect moment to ask you if I could meet the band.. because I have prayed to God that I would not let the moment pass me up when I came to it.
Thank you so very much,
God Bless,
P.S. Is there anyway that my parents could contact you? My email is (you all dont have to play I just would like to meet with all of you) your band has led me to go (with the help of the Lord) the "opposite way" Please email me as soon as you can, although I realize that you all live busy lives, but please come just for a few days to meet with my church family and meet me. thank you

by the way i meant to mention yesterday that the verse you recited is very moving.....
your blog is very interesting

once again i wish to be no burden but our small town is deep in a massive pile of sin and my classmates and people that i dont even know. i beleive they would realize that their sin is bad and is important to be removed if a band (as cool as ya'll are) would take the time to play at a small town like ours
please consider my plea... and i pray pray pray that ya'll would come.....
