Finding God's Goodness

Week Nineteen. Hopelessness. Fine Lines.

Month Five. Fortitude to love myself, expands my hope and kindness.

Lately I’ve been seeing how narrow the space is between some of my thoughts. How quickly hope can turn to despair, gratitude to ingratitude, patience to impatience. A simple critical thought or a moment without love, mercy, and compassion can turn hope into hopelessness. It is a very fine line.

Each morning I can honor the lines I wear on my face with loving gratitude as a reflection of my life’s wisdom or I can view them as a sign I am old, worn out, and something to be fixed. In each moment, which direction will I turn to in my heart? 

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

John 10:10

Lord, thank You for teaching me to cross the fine line to Your abundance and the gift of Your hope.
