Can you believe we’re almost at the end of the month? Almost one month down in this new year. Before we reached the end of this month and the topic of this month, possibility, I wanted to take some time to talk about a very important topic: hope. One of the biggest reasons I love possibilties is because when you’re able to think about and come up with possibilites, there’s always hope.
Jesus was all about the possibilities and about having hope. He experienced some situations and people He had to walk away from during His years of ministry on earth, but most of the stories in the Bible about Jesus share the creative, surprising, and different ways He approached the situiations and people and their challenges that He met. If more people were open to Jesus and the possibilities and hope He could bring to their lives, I think we would have even more incredible stories recorded in the Bible.
What if the challenges you’re facing in your life are there not because you’re walking through a dark path or because God is letting you learn something? What if the challenge is because you’re not open to having hope in regards to it or open to seeing other ways that it could work out or be played out? What if God is waiting for you take a step in a new direction? What if God is just waiting for you to have a little faith in Him and what He can do?
Today I encourage you to open your heart and mind to hope. Look for another opportunity, another way to work, another connection, or take the time to stop and listen and look and see what you may have been missing lately. Don’t give up yet, I have hope for you and God has a plan for your life.
“Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.”” Matthew 19:26
