Hello! It’s only Day 3 and I had to go back to Day 1 to remind myself what I said I would write about. Maybe my theme this year should have been wingin’ it because that is pretty much what I’m doing!
I don’t have the time to worry about editing or rewriting my sentences. My goal in doing this writing challenge is to spread a little more hope + encouragement.
We could use a little more hope in our lives, especially with all the troubles and tragedies happening in our world, our nation, our communities, our neighborhoods, our homes, and in our relationships. I have come to realize the true source of HOPE is found in Jesus.
Even though I grew up in the church, it took a long time to fathom God’s great love for me. Throughout my childhood and loooong into adulthood, I struggled with guilt and shame which eventually led me to depression and more brokenness. Ultimately, it led me to God.
I’m learning I need God. Every. Single. Day. I’m not wired to handle life on my own. You and me, we were created to depend on our creator. When we begin to handle things on our own, we separate ourselves from Him.
And yet God made himself accessible through Jesus. Sometimes I don’ t understand it. Sometimes I can’t explain it. All I know is I can’t find true hope + healing without him. Maybe you are at a season in life where you are done doing things on your own. Maybe you are ready for a change.
Tomorrow I will begin writing on creating space + time for prayer like I said I would! I hope you decide to stick around! I don’t have all the answers and I certainly don’t have it all together, but I do know where hope is found.
Hope anchors the soul. Hebrews 6:19
