Hope is Experiencing the Transforming Power of God

January 4, 2012

I am overwhelmed at the responses I have received answering, “Hope is…”.  As we enter into this new year, I have a few more thoughts on hope I would like to share this week.  

Hope is experiencing the transforming power of God:

  •  In an unforseen moment
  • With the unexpected ability to do something you never thought you could
  • Through being loved by others and loving others so much that it wells up deeply within you and you experience profound gratitude for life.  
  • Through receiving whatever grace you need in the moment you need it– to say the right words, to listen with an open heart, to have the courage to do the impossible.  

Hope is in our world, and we can choose to believe in it or not.
