A Weed or a Wish


You can see the world around you with all it’s colors, faces, places, things and still miss the miracles God is doing in it.

You can hear the world around you with all it’s noise, music, conversations, sounds and still miss what God is saying to you. 

It is easy to see the mess, the chaos, the problems, the pollution. It is easy to hear the negative words, the off key singing, the construction zone noise. 

It is natural to see all that is wrong and hear all that is loud.

It is supernatural to see all that God is doing and hear all that God is saying in it, above it and around it. 

“But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear.” (‭Matthew‬ ‭13‬:‭16‬ NIV)

How you see the world around you makes all the difference in how you experience it. 

Ask God to help your eyes really see and your ears to really hear Him today. 

Don’t live blind, live blessed.


Where you place your hope is important.

If you put your hope in yourself, you will be disappointed – you are human.

If you place your hope in another person, you will be disappointed – they are human.

If you place your hope in hope itself- it is a powerless, empty idea. Like a wish.

Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. (‭Psalm‬ ‭25‬:‭5‬ NIV)

Put your hope in God.

He is real, bigger than your situation and does more than just offer you hope- He offers you truth to walk in. He teaches you how to walk in it.

He empowers you to be brave, to see far and to rest in His loving arms.

When you are asking God to guide you in His truth and teach you how to apply it to you life, the by-product is hope.

May you be filled with His Spirit and walk in His truth today. The questions will be answered and the path opened up before when the time is right.

Put your hope in God and walk forward.
