Valuing myself gives me an attitude of hope. Setting healthy boundaries and ordering my heart towards God, I have hope, beautiful hope. As I discover who I am in Christ and the hidden mystery of my life in Him, I have one purpose — to glorify God. It is this purpose that brings meaning to my life. As I move away from this purpose, I lose hope.
Over the weekend, I was feeling spiritually flat, uninspired, and just going through the motions. I was frustrated by having Covid again and the chatter in my head about possible future uncertainties geared up. I was going through the motions during my prayer time. As I became aware of this, I was drawn back to the basics, praying some of my favorite prayers, meditating on the mysteries of the Holy Rosary, and asking for Mother Mary’s help. I sat in virtual adoration for an hour allowing God to melt my hardened heart. These simple steps oriented me towards my purpose, feeding the hope that had been buried in my heart. When I look to God, I am lifted and comforted for He is good.
Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.Psalms 43:5
Thank you Lord for allowing me to praise You, which gives me an attitude of beautiful hope.

This really spoke to me. Falling and having a serious back injury, again, has led me to moments of despair. But as I left my eyes to Christ in my bed of affliction, then this restores my HOPE!!!
