Hope For Today! April 13

Today is going to be a great day!

Dream Big!

Something good is going to happen to you today and something good is going to happen through you today! Don’t stop there because we are blessed to be a blessing. Today is our youngest sons birthday, Zach, he is 22 years old. I have been sharing about the difficult times I went through when we sold our home because of the lose, but there was also so much guilt as a mother. Zach was only 19 years old at the time, he was in his second year of college, playing football, and it forced him to grow up a lot quicker then most kids have to in this day an age. Most kids can live at home indefinitely and have that security and he didn’t have that. I know he knew that we loved him but it was still a time he had to put his faith in God to get him through that difficult time in his life.

When I was down to visit Zach on Saturday, I shared with him how God was showing me that I had to give our finances completely over to God before all the wrongs that have come against us were going to work themselves out. How our beautiful home was a source of security and status in my life and God had to free me of that and I had to rely totally of God for my security and strength. Zach looked at me and said, “Mom, that was a difficult time in my life too, but God is already using it for me to help other kids going through difficult times.” Zach is studying to be a secondary education teacher and football coach, and I know God has called him to be a teacher & mentor to young kids and use his life to help others that might be struggling in their lives. Zach has a very strong faith and I am so thankful God is such a gracious God and has great things in store for him. God is also using Nicholas, our oldest son, and his wife Julia in a powerful way through many ministries. We are very blessed and continue to look for those Treasures In The Darkness-Secret Riches because God Is Faithful!

All that worrying I did over those two years and all the fear I had, God was in control all the time. Remember to speak words of blessings over your life, over your family and your loved ones. As the Bible say,

“I will praise the Lord at all times. I will constantly speak his praises.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭34:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Hope is simply a positive attitude and mindset. The hopeful person absolutely refuses to be negative in any way. Although they recognize and deal with their problems, they remain hopeful in thought, attitude and conversation all the way through to victory. You can decide today to be full of Hope.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Hope achieves the impossible! Your life will be more rewarding, more fulfilling when you are in relationship with the creator. God breathed His life into you and He knows what your purpose is. He knows what you can accomplish.

“For with God nothing shall be impossible.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭1:37‬ ‭KJV‬‬

The scripture says if you’ll put God first He will crown your efforts with success. His favor on your life will take you where your talents could not take you. Let go of the things in your past and start fresh. Ask God to take everything that’s ever been done to you that’s been unjust and somehow work it out for your good and turn it into something that can actually help other people. Something new is about to happen now. This is a new day. Believe and declare you will run and not be weary. God is renewing your strength. Soar like an Eagle!

“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭40:31‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Believe In Miracles! Blessings! Melissa
