Hope

I believe that God has put something in us that thrives on hope.  In the bible "faith" is defined as the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen".  In the bible God's people thrived off  theie hope in the fullfullment of God's promises.  Faith is the substance of hope.  I have started this book called "The Me Project".  It helps you to prayerfully outline 50 goals or desires you have for you life and then to seek God as you pick one to start working towards.   I think this book is going to help me alot in my life right now, because I am a mother to 2 young children and I easily get lost in the busyness of my days only to wake up and start all over again the next day.  One of my ministers tweeted that "Hope that is seen is not hope".  Have you ever wondered why you are never completely satisfied with where you are at in life no matter how much you attain, no matter how much you grow spiritually, no matter how much your ministry grows, no matter how much you recognize the hand of God in your life.  I have noticed.  I believe God has wired us to reside in hope.  I asked myself this morning "Ande, what are you hoping for?".  I asked myself that because I wanted to awaken myself from my reality, because I realize my present day circumstance is not what's going to drive me into a life of fullfillment and destiny; but rather it is my "hope".  I need to live in "hope" of what God has promised to me.  The things you hope for are almost like a target.  As you live your life you need a target, something to aim at, if you will.  This will continue to move you forward because the target is ahead of you, but in front of you; so it keeps you moving forward in it's direction.  God has put somje desires on our hearts, God has given us some goals, some things to hope for.  I need to learn to keep my eyes on what's in front of me and ahead of me.  I am ready to walk to path of destiny, paved in hope and marked with all the desires that God has placed on my heart.  They are positioned in specific places in time and I must just walk forward everyday in faith and hope.  Lord give me a target or goal to set my hope on in the season I'm in right now, in Jesus name I pray.  Amen
