Some times Hope doesn’t look like what you think it should. We are looking for one thing, but something else shows up. If we are connected to the creator of the universe, God we recognize it. Hope is always here.
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.
He is the LORD Almighty. He is deity. He is the all knowing, all powerful, creator of the universe. He is not a good human being. He is beyond our imaginations. When the situation seems tough, remember there is someone who can handle it.
He came that we may have peace. As a pastor reminded me this week, peace means well being.
He is an Everlasting Father. He chose the role of father so that we would be his children. He has promised to guard and guide us into eternity.
He is a Wonderful Counselor. I mean think about it. He knows everything about you because He created you. Isaiah 9:6 tells us He is a wonderful counselor.
Christians are preparing to celebrate God coming to earth during the month of December. This month we will focus on His attributes. Isaiah 9:6 tells us He is a mighty God. He is a powerful God, someone with strength. Remember that this week as you encounter problems. God is mighty.
The Bible teaches us that from our hearts everything about our life flows from it. What we love and believe in our hearts determines how we see the world around us.
We need to be careful about the things we allow to influence our hearts. We need to guard it.
The people who surround your life will determine what type of life you have. They will decide if your life is full of joy or focused on what you don’t have. So pick your village carefully.
When I say village I mean your friends, family members you hang with, where you work and what you do. All of this determines your quality of life.
I have great family and friends because of how we chose to have a relationship. We set healthy boundaries. This doesn’t mean our lives are perfect. It just means we have our own definition of good.
