“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful” (Hebrews 10:23).

No matter what we face, dear sisters, keep your unswerving hope in Jesus. Are your circumstances insurmountable? Anything is possible for our God!

My husband, Darrell, and I are going through an experience we’ve never had before. On March 21st, we sold our beautiful home on an acre in a wonderful neighborhood built around a serene lake in central Florida. We were moving away for ministry. The problem is we haven’t found a place to live. We are literally trusting God and holding unswervingly to our hope and trust in Jesus!

Every time I feel overwhelmed, which is at least a few times a day, I claim the Scripture from Isaiah 26:3: “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee.”

My mind is at peace as I continue to hope in the Lord.

We are blessed to stay with dear friends temporarily. As I walked my dog a few days after we arrived at their home, feeling exhausted and somewhat disheartened, I distinctly remember a sudden lift in my spirit, a shift in the atmosphere. I looked up to the sky in gratitude.

Nothing in my present circumstances changed, but something in me changed. My hope was renewed! 

Sisters, whatever your circumstance, in unswerving hope, lift your voice and hands to the Lord— claiming His promises!

I love the song “Everlasting God” by William Murphy. Let us worship in hope while we declare the Word of God. 

We set our hope on You, God!


Tisa came to the Lord in the power of His salvation at thirteen and was raised by an awesome single mom. Tisa comes from the experience of having a “not-so-perfect” home life and background. She has allowed the Lord to rewire her thinking through His Word and hopes to encourage other “not-so-perfect” ladies through the lessons she has learned.


  1. Thank you for sharing your story! This devotion ministered to me deeply. I was lying awake at 4am, thinking about many things, and I received a notification of a new devotional—exactly what I needed. ❤️Believing that God has the most perfect home for you!

  4. Thank you dear sister for speaking this truth into todays church. While I walk through this current age it has had pushed and pulled on so many people around me and even my own family but the power of this Holy Scripture brought to understanding by the Holy Spirit has spoken straight into my life. I love that you say at least 5 times a day, me too. What a merciful Lord we serve.
