All The Great Things Are Simple

All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope. Winston Churchill

HOPE

For the past few years, I’ve chosen a word to focus on for the upcoming year. The word is one God has impressed upon my heart through prayer and bible study. It tends to pop into my day at the oddest moments, glowing like a neon sign.

My word for this year is HOPE.

Not the ‘cross-my-fingers-and-hope-it-comes-to-pass’ hope. That’s just an optimistic wish.

The hope I’m focusing on for 2012 is the biblical hope. It is the confident expectation that God will keep His promises. This hope is the absolute certainty that my future holds good things.

But as for me, I will hope continually, and will praise Thee yet more and more. Psalm 71:14

 

May you have…

May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope;
The spirit of Christmas which is peace:
The heart of Christmas which is love.
Ada V. HendricksĀ 

Open Doors

When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.

Alexander Graham Bell
