Hopelessness is a crippling, soul- sucking lie that is used to sabotage our lives and suffocate our faith.
Hopefulness is the life-altering knowledge that God is real, present and participating in your life.
When all that I am is laid before the Great I Am, all my weaknesses, strengths,thoughts, doubts, fears and dreams become quiet and the weight of the world is taken off my weak human shoulders and placed upon Him.
When I am filled with hope, I am filled with an overwhelming sense of purpose and a calming sense of rest.
Maybe this is what Jesus meant when he said:
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (Matthew 11:28, 29 NIV)
You don’t have to work for hope, you just have to ask for help. God’s help comes God’s hope.
May “all that you are” find rest in the presence of the Almighty as you give him what you are carrying and receive from him what you need today.
