There’s Hope.

“The difference between a successful person

and others is not a lack of strength,

not a lack of knowledge,

but rather a lack of will.”

– unattributed –

Sometimes there is a gap between knowing what to do

and doing what needs to be done.

Call it confusion, ignorance, being lost, being alone, being broken, being afraid – whatever it is – it blinds us from having a clear vision for the future.

It can be difficult to decipher in these times what the next step to take is…

We may have a dream,

or a goal,

or a vision for our life,

but we are not sure how to approach it, achieve it or move forward in the moment.

In these moments we can trust that God has an ultimate purpose and vision for our lives that is far beyond our comprehension.

“Listen to advice and accept instruction,

and in the end you will be wise.

Many are the plans in a man’s heart,

but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”

Proverbs 19: 20-21

Hope is like an anchor for the soul.

Hope keeps us patient while we wait for answers.

Love keeps us secure while we trust for guidance.

Forgiveness keeps us free from the failures of the past that dare to steal the hope of the future.

God tells His people that His plans are good and their hope shall not be cut off.

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Faith keeps us on the path with God, moving with the leading of the Holy Spirit and helping us to discern God’s will for our lives.
