Hope is a powerful thing, and if God gives it the world can’t take it away.
I once heard a good acronym for HOPE;
Honest Optimism Practically Expressed.
Hope opens up the power flow for the Holy Spirit to move in your life. Doubt closes it. The Lord would tell me off when I expressed any doubts about His promises.
Hang in there and don’t stop believing.
Here’s Psalm 25 put to music by Third day. It’s called “My hope is in you.” We played this at our wedding at the conclusion of the service. It meant a lot to us, as we’d put our hope in the Lord – and he did more for us than we ever expected or imagined.
I hope you have some en-JOY-able times this year, even in the midst of challenges.
