Day 7: When the world tries to steal your hope…
Have you watched the news lately? Government shut downs, shootings, more corruption, more greed, more hurt….little hope. Where do you hide when everything, everyone around is crying recession or worse?
If your hope is in this world then I am not sure there is much lasting hope to be found. What we need is a shelter in the storm. We can hope (and should!) that the powers that be will get it together soon and the government shutdown won’t continue but in the end people disappoint us. What we need is a hope that does not disappoint….
Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God….and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. Romans 5:2,5
