"But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you."
~ Psalm 39: 7
We all seem to try to find things to fill our life. Family, job, school, activities that seem to keep us busy.
Lately I have been thinking a lot about finding solitude. Sometimes I think that our lives become so absolutely busy that we can easily miss the blessings that are present or waiting for us.
When I think about hope, I realize that it is the one thing that we really must allow to exist.
People seem to have lost hope. It's really easy to do. When our lives become so busy, and then when we hear of some of the things happening in the world, the whole idea of hope seems to disappear.
To have hope is to once again believe in greater things, or that things will get better. Sometimes finding a quiet place, focusing on what lies ahead, and seeking the plans that God has for our life is exactly what hope is all about.
While we are only days away from Thanksgiving and a week away from the beginning the season of Advent, I hope that we lift a prayer of hope that the world will become a better place.
Giving hope a chance means that we believe in God for greater things. I always try to have hope in the Lord first.
Stay in God's grip!
