Don’t let the first few days of this month diminish your hope. This will be determined by where you place your hope. If you place it in circumstances, then this past week might have given you a little trouble.
I place my hope in Jesus. As I was reminded by bible study this week, sometimes He even blesses my mess. Instead of giving me what I deserve, He will make it so that I get a blessing from it.
Even though things look rough. Look for the hope in it.
