My Hope Is Renewed
Well, I just finished up another seemingly never ending day. However, God took me through it despite my depleted strength. I find that every time I think I’m going to collapse God catches me. As you’ve read this has been a very challenging week of ministry for me. But, there are always going to be days and weeks that just take all you’ve got and more.
The good news is I’m much better at the moment. I’ve already taken my nighttime medication in hopes of staying ahead of this nerve pain. Plus I’ve got to rise really early to finish preparing for a funeral. One thing that helps me often with perspective is all the things that I see. I see so many people who I know are doing way worse than me.
Now, I never like to see people hurting physically or emotionally. But, I do believe God allows us to see things to give us perspective. You see, there is always someone who has it worse than you. There is always someone who doesn’t know the same hope as you do. Can you imagine even trying to live through these times without the hope of Jesus in your life.? Fortunately, those who know Jesus will never be hopeless and always have a reason to smile.
“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” Hebrews 6:19
