It is easy to have hope when that is what you see.  When things are going well, hope is effortless.  But, if it is effortless, is it really even hope?  Or is it really just feeling good because things are going well?  In my opinion, having real hope means that despite my circumstances, I can look beyond and know that there is something better.  It means that even when the world seems to be crashing down around me, I know that joy comes in the morning.  And, it means that when things are at their darkest, there is always a glimmer of light.

I was listening to an older Third Day song this morning.  It is one of my favorites…Cry Out To Jesus.  It is a reminder that there is hope for the helpless, rest for the weary, and love for the broken heart.  There is grace and forgiveness, mercy and healing…HE will meet you where ever you are!

It is a powerful reminder of where my hope comes from.  Now to learn to live more like someone who has hope…
