We must have hope

We must have hope

Our church (don’t leave me now, hope is relevant to everyone!) is going through a series about telling your story. The theory being that the things you have done, or have happened to you have brought you to the place you are, and there are probably people who could benefit from knowing your experiences and seeing how you conquered your giants, so to speak.

I will admit, this has not been an easy few weeks for me, as I have reflected on some of the poor choices I made in my life. In fact, there are a couple instances where I can honestly say, “I’m thankful to be alive.”

This week’s discussion is about hope. I believe we all need hope. You don’t have to reflect on your past to consider the topic of hope, and it is indeed something you should take time to consider. Hope is what gets us through each day! However, what that hope looks like could be different for each of us.

Here’s the topics we are to consider this week…
• People or events that made our life better
• What we look to for hope and fulfillment
• Things we are passionate about.

If you know me at all, you will know that I am passionate about four things
1. Early intervention education for children on the Autism Spectrum
2. Military Families
3. Helping hurting teens/young adults who feel unloved
4. Make a positive difference in the lives of others

For fulfillment, I like to spend time with my grandchildren, they are the hope of the future.

People or events that made my life better: The day I came to understand it’s not about religion, it’s about a relationship.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it – grin.

How about you? What do you hope for and where do you find your hope for the future?
Important things to consider as we get closer to celebrating Thanksgiving.
We must have hope. Hope is what gets us through the day!
