Desperate For Good Luck
We’ve all heard the following saying a few times in our life. That being “if it wasn’t for bad luck I wouldn’t have any luck at all.” It’s starting to feel this way in our household. Without going into detail most would be amazed at the volume of letdowns and breakdowns we’ve experienced in the past few months alone. After awhile it just leaves you shaking your head in disbelief, shock, and major letdown.
Now, I really don’t base my hopes on good or bad luck. However, I would be a liar if I didn’t say continuous letdowns don’t bring you down. If I’ve ever felt low it’s certainly been over the past few months. My wife and I both are very tired and discouraged all at once. Those two things combined rarely produce anything great except depression.
Now, I can tell what satan hopes to do to the Crosby family. He hopes to steal our joy, peace, and purpose. He plans to keep pouncing in hopes that we will feel hopeless. Fortunately, we know our hope has never rested on our luck or the number of our trials. Our hope rest only in whose we are and who we are in Christ. Nothing can steal that hope and it will keep us anchored through this trying season and beyond.
“This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary.”
