Let's stay with the HOPE theme again today. A friend of mine defines it as Having Only Positive Expectations. Well, the only way to make that happen is to realize that some things are juts not in our control. Scripture says, "I CAN do ALL things (through Christ) who strengthens me." It's in Him that I live and move and have my being. My mind can be in a positive place. My words can match those thoughts. But unless my actions and my daily steps are in a positive, forward direction, I will not rise up with hope.
Today they said this recession in our economy may end this year. For many people that news is hopeful. Ultimately, if we keep making good decisions, if we are smart with our money and if we pray before we spend it will indeed change. God says so. Whatever you sow, you will reap. It WILL change because of His Word, not what the FED says.
So today, hold your head up, take steps forward in His power and have only positive expectations. Your breakthrough is closer than you think!
