Hope

hope ave and change wayThis is a word that has incredibly deep meaning. I’ve been in a place of incredible hope and I know the opposite of hope, which is despair. Hope is anticipation, expectation & desire for something to happen. Hope often keeps me motivated and moving forward in the journey.  If I lost all hope, it would make it tough to keep being positive and moving forward. Paul writes to the church in Rome about this very subject. Check this out…

5 May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, 6 so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
13 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. (Romans 15:5-6; 13 NIV) 

Hope changes perspective. Hope brings life with it. Hope pushes out despair and all sorts of fear and doubt. Hope gives me positive perspective and direction. My Hope rests in Christ as I face the every day and/or the mundane tasks of life. I have hope that this life is not all there it. I believe in eternal life with God in heaven. I have hope because I know Jesus, my hope is built on faith in Him.

Pressing On!
