Another year has come to an end. And what a year it was!
Remember the blog post I wrote last year titled "Holidays and Loss"? Well, this holiday season was vastly different from last holiday season (thank you Jesus)!
Have you ever been brokenhearted? Me too. Today, in fact, marks the one year anniversary of when I received a phone call with devastating news. I was so brokenhearted that I turned off my phone, wept, and cried out (more like screamed out) to the Lord. There was nothing anyone could say to ease my pain.
Remember when I wrote "Find Balance in Passion (Part 1)" back in October? Well, I'm still searching for the balance and am ready to write part 2. Perhaps you're thinking, "It's been nearly a month since you've written a blog post. Where have you been?"
It may be easy to, at times, feel hopeless. This is because our hopelessness stems from a desire for earthly treasures; wealth, companionship, the latest gadgets, and fulfillment of what WE think we need and when we need it. "God [however] is called 'the God of Hope.' This means He is the source of all real hope. If we are going to have hope (confident expectation), it must come from Him for He alone has the power to give it."
