Every day brings with it a new Sun, but it also seems to bring some of the same old stories. Someone once said, “There is nothing new under the Sun.” Is this true? Is this as good as it gets? When you turn on the TV…CNN (Constant Negative News) it feeds the idea that the world will always be a dangerous, and sad place to live. It is true that the same sad stories show up day after day. But there is still hope, because it’s not over. How can I say there’s still hope?
I can say there is still hope because I choose to be the hope I seek. I choose to take on the attitude of hope. What is hope? There is an important definition of the word hope “tequmah” from Hebrew meaning-the power to stand. This power comes from the expectation that things are going to change. That change starts with you. I ask you today to think about hope. Get yourself to expect a great day. Focus on what you can do to create a great day. Plan on it, and expect great results. If you believe it, expect it, do something that aligns with hope, and you will see new results.
Anything is Possible!
