Every news, whether on TV, radio, internet, social media or person to person talk, it reeks of “Hopelessness”. If you doubt, tune to CNN, Syria wars, Hong Kong internal strife, poverty in Nigeria, corruption in African Governments, wildfire in California again, mass shooting n schools and Malls….the list is endless.
It’s seems there is no where to turn to hear or see anything hopeful. Hence the basis of the new world philosophy of “believing in Yourself” since there is no hope out there.
Hopelessness is the defeat of living…”
[A] person whose head is bowed and whose eyes are heavy cannot look at the light.
Christine de Pizan
And John 8:12 says ” Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
Listen to 1st Timothy 1:1… “Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by command of God our Savior and of Christ Jesus our hope,”
We really need to know where our hope lies because those who don’t know get frustrated easily.
Are you getting frustrated easily and lately? Check where your hope lies.
Again 1st Timothy 4:10 says “For to this end we toil and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe.”
Let me end with a quote from Nelson Mandela” .. “May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.”
