Is Hope Necessary?

For I know, the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Do you think hope is a necessary part of life? Brother or sister, I do! If we didn’t have hope, how could we possibly have a future? If you don’t make hope part of your daily attitude, then what’s the alternative - doom and gloom. Think about those few people in your life who bring joy just by walking in. How do they do it.? They choose to do it. They focus on the positive instead of the negative. But, you say, my life is so negative; I have nothing to be positive about - really?

Let me tell you a few of the things I have been doing: not watching the news (it’s either bad or fake); listening to positive motivators (Steve Harvey’s got some great stuff on his podcast); getting up and thanking God for the day (even Monday); counting my blessings; getting away from negative folks.

OK, Linda, my life stinks right now. OK, (Blank), you can dwell on the garbage (we all got some), or we can seek God who has your plan which is full of hope and a future. Hey, my name ain’t SUNSHINE, so I got plenty of stuff too. I am using index cards with positive sayings, Bible verses, sentence prayers (oh, Linda, what a geek you are). Who cares? Don’t you want to smile, say something nice, make someone’s day - hope for the best!

There is NO perfection here on earth, only in Heaven. You and I are living here now, As long as we live for God, we do have hope and a future! Focus on the good God has given you. WHAT A MIGHTY GOD WE SERVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
