Right Now Monday * Hope & Happy Labor Day

Yes, another Monday and Right now on this Labor Day I am resting, physically and in the assurance of the HOPE in my heart. HOPE is always a great journaling prompt. For me recently, HOPE has touched my heart.

HOPE that;

  • Everything is going to be okay.
  • That healing is taking place.
  • Is vital for the future.
  • Encourages and spurs us on.

That there are new beginnings despite things not working the way we thought.
Whether you are a person of faith or not, I am, HOPE is a necessity.  I am encouraged by something a very wise man shared long ago, ‘Rejoice in HOPE, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.’

Are you needing HOPE in a specific area of your life? Are you feeling HOPEFUL? Do you need a reminder of HOPE?  Right here, right now . . . What do you feel about

    First off another Monday how did that happen? Second I had some moments this weekend that send my back to a place I did not want to be with feelings that were wrong and not nice! Funny how one text message can send you back to a place you do not want to be or go again. So today after reading your post I am hopeful that I am now turning it back over to God and letting my life go back to peace and happiness. It is funny how much power we give other people.

      Oh Michelle, I too had a conversation with my mom and had to turn some things back over to God. He is certainly all powerful to handle all. I’d love if you’d send me a message and I got your phone number again. I’d love to text or call from time to time. Sending warmest love!

    Beautiful expression of God’s renewing in your heart and soul. Sometimes I wish for the creativity to express what is truly in my heart the way you do.
