“And so, Lord, where do I put my hope?
My only hope is in you.”
-Psalm 39:7 NLT

A Time to Think… “Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.” ―Desmond Tutu

A Time to Act… What is the first thing you do in the morning? If it is not speaking with the Lord, thanking him for the blessings he has given you, what else could be more important? If you want a hope-filled life, it will only be in the Lord, for nothing in this world can even begin to compare! 

A Time to Pray… O Lord, in this New Year, I want to feel hope in action, to embrace hope for each day, and to share hope with others. Draw me close to you, fill me anew with your Holy Spirit that my days are inspired with your love, grace and blessings, that I may live as your child with hope no matter what comes my way, and I can share this life-giving hope to others. In your name I ask it, AMEN.
