Hope - by Carlee Squires
I'm often guilty of using hope by it’s earthly definition...an expectation or a promise of something better coming my way. The problem is, is that the word hope in this way displays my selfish desires and wants. What I often forget is that Jesus defines hope. He was sent in the form of a LIVING hope and gives us what we need. Not until we fully seek and embrace Jesus will we truly understand hope. Take a moment to listen to “Living Hope” by Phil Wickham and reflect on Jesus as our living hope as we enter into this season of Advent.
"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. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
