Staying Hopeful

Day 8 of 10 • This day’s reading


Life can get hard, and it’s easy to get mired in feelings of insecurity, fear, doubt, anger and confusion. If we keep trying to preserve what only God can renew, we will continue to struggle. And then we won’t be able to give anything to the lost and dying world that surrounds us.

But if we go to the source Himself, if we fill ourselves daily with His living Word and refreshing presence, guess what happens? Whatever we are struggling against begins to fade away and is replaced by God’s love, joy, peace and hope. 

Go to your source, Jesus Christ, today. Be refreshed in His love and grace, and then share it with a world that so desperately needs it.
