“There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as expectation of something tomorrow.” – Orison Swett Marden
As a man of venture I must admit I have had some extreme ups and downs in my life. My desire to do something special in this world coupled with the desire for freedom to choose which way to head, has always offered me a new Hope for things to come. My ego, on the other hand has often lead me to pain!
Today, I must keep my ego in check and my Hope alive! Hope especially during the tough times is the fuel to keep us moving forward. For me personally, Hope is my Prozac! Without Hope I would have tossed in the towel already. As long as I have Hope within I have a shot to fulfill my God given talents, desires and mission.
It is no wonder that Hope is categorized with Faith and Love in the Bible with Love being the most important of all. Yet if you think about it, without the other it is difficult to have any of the three. Without Faith how can you have Hope? Without Hope do you truly have Faith? Certainly without Love what are the other two? I was having a challenging day yesterday and I received a message from a friend to please call asap. When I called she told me a friend of mine was having some challenges and would I call? Of course I did and to be honest I felt an abundance of joy to have the opportunity that after so many years I could be there for him. Another friendly reminder that God has a better plan.
Today I pray, “Lord, keep me true, let me Love, and thank you for the Hope You have given me, I have the Faith that You today and every day will continue to lead the way”! Amen…
Go, Go, Go…
