Craft activities: Thursday

Make a hope jar

Here’s an activity to help you recognise how God supports you and carries you through those times when you think there is nothing to hope for.

Romans 15. 12-13

And again, Isaiah says, ‘The Root of Jesse will spring up, one who will arise to rule over the nations; in him the Gentiles will hope.’ May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Hope can be seen in many ways. In the world people consider hope to be something that they want to happen or be true. As a Christian we don’t wish or hope for something to happen, a Christian knows that their hope is solid, concrete and based on the word of God. In Hebrews 11 it calls it faith in action the ‘confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.’ Like faith, hope cannot be moved by circumstance or what the eyes see in the world. Hope is down to your steadfast belief in the one true God.
