Where are you today? Are you living the life you want to live? Are you fulfilling your God-given mission and purpose in life? Do you have your core values, your dreams and goals, and your purpose statement written down and in plain sight? Or…are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, guilty for your past mistakes, or just plain hopeless?
Some time ago my oldest son, Bobby, who’s a pastor, spoke about hope and his outline really resonated with me. Bobby laid the case that hopeful people are more imaginative because they continually use their creative minds to think about what might be coming next. He went on to say that they are more creative as they not only think about what might happen, but they use creative, wild scenarios and put them into action. They aren’t afraid to try something new that might be out of their comfort zone. He also said that hope-filled people are patient as they trust God, holding on to the promise that no matter how bleak things might seem, they just need to hang-on and live one day at a time as they fulfill their purpose and their destiny. Bobby also believes that hopeful people are more moral as they weigh each decision based on deep-seeded values and cling to the belief that something great is yet to come. And lastly, he positions those filled with hope as constant or steadfast. They don’t easily give up or give in.
