Welcome!

Welcome to Strength for Today, Bright Hope for Tomorrow! My goal, and the purpose of this blog, is to encourage young women in their daily life and their walk with God. The wonderful hymn Great Is Thy Faithfulness, which contains the line “Strength for today, bright hope for tomorrow”, has become a favorite of mine as God has given me strength each day to follow Him, and the bright hope for both my earthly future and eternity in Heaven. As Christ brings me strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow, I hope you find it as well. Great is HIS faithfulness!

All Access Pass


“I have a backstage pass to the concert!” “We were able to get all access passes for the amusement park!” “The package included a pass to meet the conference main speaker!” These are all exciting to have. They give the holder a privilege that is usually limited to only a few. Most of us will live our whole lives never meeting anyone we would consider “famous”. Some of us have or will try, but not succeed. Only a few will attain those exclusive passes. However, what many Christians don’t remember is that we have been given the best pass ever. By having our sins forgiven and Christ’s righteousness imputed upon us, we have been given an all access pass to the throne room of God. We are invited to enter, and approach the throne of grace, boldly and with confidence! There is no problem too big or too small, to conversation too deep or too trivial for God. And He wants us to come. Why would I go to a concert, sit in the back, and leave early if I had a ticket that gave me a front row seat and the chance to meet the musician? I wouldn’t, no one would! So, I shouldn’t stand in the hall outside God’s throne room either. I need to accept this amazing privilege God has offered me, rejoice, and go in! This opportunity should excite each of us more than any other pass we may get in life. If you are a Christian, you have an all access pass into the throne room of God! Does that excite you?
