Today I just want to do my best to infuse you with hope.
It is so easy for a grieving parent or a grieving widow who is feeling the full weight of their deep loss to believe it will be impossible to have a life worth living; to believe they will never be able to have a life of meaning and purpose again.
But they can!
Do I still struggle? Without a doubt!
But that spark of hope never leaves me. I won’t let it! I have hope that it will get brighter again. I have hope that God has joy and laughter in my life again. I have hope that this is only temporary, and I will see and be reunited with my husband and my son again!
Hope is in me, because the Giver of Hope is in me. And He is in you!
So right now, choose to come into agreement with what Paul wanted for all of us. Romans 15:13 “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Today I want to release that seed of HOPE. And I want you to begin to water it, and watch it grow. Probably not as fast as you want it to, but by the power of the Holy Spirit, it will abound and you will live, love and laugh again!
