Hope is defined as “a feeling of expectation, as desire for a certain thing to happen. Hope is the dream, wish, or expectation that keeps us moving forward when life looks bleak. For years, I placed my hope in the next thing… when I get married, when I have kids, when I get that job, when we live in that city in that house, then I will be happy. It honestly never stops when you live your life this way, always chasing for more. It took me awhile to shift my focus, but I have come to realize that the best place to anchor my HOPE is in Christ. He has a plan and a purpose for my life. He orders my steps and guides me in the journey He has in store for my life. I have found such freedom in taking this approach to life. The pressure isn’t on me to figure it all out. All I have to do is trust and obey where God is calling me to go and what He is calling me to do. My HOPE is in Christ and my prayer is that yours will be, too.
