Day 16: Hopeful Hope


We started this Journey 16 days ago

on that magic day~

New Years

when the clock turned & so do we

because

HOPE

becomes a possibility

that will

HOPEFULLY

turn into

Reality

with each and every

RESOLUTION~

I will change this one thing,

because when I do then I will

be better & feel better & everything will be better.

Another

RESOLUTION

to focus on that enables us to

Press Forward

when we would much rather

hide under a rock or run in the other direction.

Yet

HOPE

always finds us,

whether we are following those

RESOLUTIONS or not.

or not.

Because

HOPE

is Reality

here &now

even though

we can't see it or smell it .

We hang onto it as what is life without

HOPE?

What gets you up in the morning besides

your job, your kids or your appointments and to do lists?

What if it was

HOPE~

a craving & a desire

for that something more that we are looking for

yet really exists.

A peace fills my heart as I think about this

and remember the words~

TRUST GOD & WAIT PATIENTLY & WATCH EXPECTANTLY

that I have on every one of my outgoing emails, but I forget to read & follow,

yet bring

HOPE

into the here & now

into every moment

no matter what that moment is~

No matter if you have nothing or something that wakes you up in the morning.

Because no matter what

HOPE

is always present~

"What a GOD we have! And how fortunate we are to have HIM,

this FATHER of our Master JESUS! Because JESUS was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven—

and the future starts now! GOD is keeping careful watch over us and the future.

The Day is coming when you’ll have it all—life healed and whole.

I know how great this makes you feel, even though you have to put up with every kind of aggravation in the meantime. Pure gold put in the fire comes out of it proved pure; genuine faith put through this suffering comes out proved genuine.

When JESUS wraps this all up, it’s your faith, not your gold, that

GOD will have on display as evidence of HIS victory." I Peter 1:3-5

HOPE

is here & now

because

HE IS in the here & now~

JESUS IS the MORE that we all have been

HOPING for~

TRUST GOD & WAIT PATIENTLY & WATCH EXPECTANTLY!
