3. Fill your soul with HOPE
'This hope we have as an anchor of the soul. both sure and steadfast' Heb 6:19
Without hope, we have nothing to secure us in life's storms. Those who find themselves consumed with despair and hopelessness (and I have been there!! Any one else what to own up??) find themselves unhinged and then quickly drift of course.
It is easy to become filled with fear as the negative voices that seem to surround you. What is it that seeks to hijack your joy?
You can keep hope alive and strong by daily meditating on God's word. Practice reflecting and thinking on God's word throughout your day. POUR HOPE into your soul FEAST on God's word.
When Alison and I lost our 1st little boy named Luke (He lived for 6 hours), this as you can imaging was a difficult time for us, our family and our church. After the understandable time of Grieving and finding God to be our refuge and strong tower. As we read his word, strength came to our lives and hope filled our soul and assured us that he was with us, he had called us and we had a work to do. We were to to hold his hand and trust in him - and we did and the journey continues to this day.
You need to know that Jesus is with you, 'even to the very end of the age'. Hope will always lead you on, upward and forward.
