Filled with Hope

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13 NIV)

Today people are on a mission...to find the best bargain ever...the most amazing sale...maybe even finish their Christmas shopping in a matter of hours:) If you have ever ventured out during a Black Friday experience then you know just how easy it is to get caught up in the event. It takes enthusiasm, determination and a ton of patience.
I realize that while you are sipping your cup of joe, you may still be out looking for deals or you might have just returned home and be headed for the sleep you gave up to join in this adventure. My prayer for you is the prayer that I pray for myself. To be filled with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit and to have an over abundance of joy and peace as you trust in the Lord. As our trust account grows, so too will our joy and peace and hope will spring forth like never before. Don't let anything or anyone steal your joy today. This truly is the most wonderful time of the year! Have an amazing weekend!
