Whether it be healing, change, a job, for a family member, a friend, your marriage or yourself we can all say that we have HOPED for something.
I have always hoped for change. Change in my thoughts, actions, and words that they might glorify God. I have wished for so many years that I would approach my marriage, my kids actions, loss of jobs, peoples opinions, differently.
I believe as I have messed up, grown and been placed in some pretty yucky situations I have changed. It hasn't been beautiful. Its honestly been messy. But I am so entirely grateful for HOPE. Hope in the Lord that He will come through. It's about praying and putting our hope in the one true God. Things are not perfect in my life but I can see that I approach things differently today than I did a year ago, five years ago, ten years ago. I am a work in progress and I am HOPEFUL.
I would like to hear how you have hoped and prayed and where the Lord has shown up and changed things for you.
Maybe you are still waiting for the change to come. I would love to pray and believe with you for that thing you are hoping for.
"But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31 NLT
