Finding Hope

Maybe I’m just tired, or maybe I’m noticing it more… but the sheer evil in this world has been wearing me down.  Turn on the television- violence, open the paper or a magazine- more stories of violence, and don’t even look at social media unless you want to see graphic pictures and graphic writing.

The stories that really hit hard are the ones about crimes against children.   I am sick to my stomach about these things.   How can children be abused so horribly?   I thought I had seen and been through some bad things, but lately, oh my goodness….  I cry out to God to save these poor innocent babies.

We are in the process of opening a foster home.  It’s been a long process, and yes, I am tired and stressed…. but oh, how amazing it is going to be to welcome in a child to our home and help rebuild what someone else has destroyed.   I suppose the whole point of this post is to encourage you to find hope, give hope, be hope to someone out there, regardless of age, race, male or female– give someone hope today.   In return, you may find yourself being hopeful again.   For when two or more are gathered, God is present.

Ch. 4- Psalm 39:7

And so, Lord, where do I put my hope? My only hope is in you. 

Days of hopelessness, feeling lost, unsure of where you’re supposed to be in your life, are sure to come.   But, as believers, we have the promise that our Father is going to take care of us.  

Breathe…

Ch. 4- Mark 8:34-37

Then, calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, if any of you wants to be my followers, you must give up your own way, take up your cross, and follow me.   If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it.  But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it.  And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?  Is anything worth more than your soul?

It’s hard to move on with the plans God has for you if you are still hanging on to the corner of a former life.   Think about it… What do you need to let go of to fulfill your purpose?

Ch. 3- Proverbs 3:34

The Lord mocks the mockers but is gracious to the humble.  

Those that are quiet, or unobtrusive, are often mocked and criticized for not joining the crowd.   Don’t be afraid to keep to yourself, or to be quiet when under attack.   The Lord sees and hears what is being done to you, trust Him to be in control.
