HOPE...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 just 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 when my body is in a negative one. My words can match my thoughts. But unless my actions and my daily steps are in a positive, forward direction, I will not rise up with hope.
With so much that is uncertain in our economy we need hope. When relationships or jobs end, we need to learn how to have positive expectations. 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. If we take care of those close to us everything will work out for the best. God says so. Whatever you sow, you will reap.
So today, hold your head up, take steps forward in His power and have only positive expectations. Your breakthrough is closer than you think!
