hope

Hope is essential to life.  We all need hope – hope that today will have good things in it, hope that our hearts will stay connected to Christ, hope that the price of gas will stop rising, hope that my son David will stop trying to get me to like snakes, hope that I’m doing a good job as a wife & mom, hope that God is bigger than my doubts, hope that they’ll have decaffeinated coffee in Ethiopia, . . . .  hope. 

Obama wrote a book called, “The Audacity of Hope” – I have the audacity of hope that God is alive & working in every moment of each day through the good, medium & yucky.  Ps 146:5,  “Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, Whose hope is in the LORD his God.”
What are your hopes?

  1. Hope is one subject about which I pound my fist and become red in the face. I could spend hours talking about it. Ours is the business of Hope. Hope of Christ’s return, the kingdom coming, all that jazz.

  2. I’m with Sean, not hoping but filled with hope. I have very little patience for hand-wringers, whiners, and doom-and-gloomers. “Ours is the business of Hope” in Christ.
