Just A Little Bit Of HopeFriday, September 2, 2011
Sometimes, all we need is a little bit of hope...just a little bit.
With a little bit of hope, we can get ourselves out of bed and whisper a quick, "Thank you, Jesus, for this day."
We can keep writing when we wonder if anyone will ever see our words...printed...bound between covers.
We keep taking pictures, determined to bless as many people as we can with an image of their true...deep-down beauty.
We keep being the parents we dream of being...with patience and kindness...that learn to discipline with the right blend of love and affection (Lord, HELP me with that one!).
We keep our eyes tuned to the lost and hurting, looking for creative ways to shower them with love.
A little bit of hope brings the lyrics and harmony to new songs and new sounds that will take the world by storm.
Hope reminds us that our loneliness is only for a second...and before we know it...we will be in someone's arms--arms created just to hold us.
Sometimes, all we need is a little bit of hope to keep on believing, to keep on pressing, to keep on fighting to become that man or woman we know we were created to be. With hope, we notice the King's breath on our cheek...we can feel the warmth in His shadow...we can hear the faint beat of his heart as it picks up speed just from watching us...
Sometimes, all we need is a little bit of hope.
Sometimes, all God wants to do is drown us in hope.
Sometimes, we don't notice it...sometimes we don't want it...
But today is Friday--a new day. And I feel hope pulsating through the air.
I know things are about to change.
I hear the rustling in the Mulberry trees...
I can feel His breath...
And I'm running in it...dancing like a giddy little girl that cannot get enough of it.
I have a little bit of hope that is quickly growing and taking shape into a whole new world.
