In church yesterday, the message we received was powerful. It brought many of us to tears, including the boys. So yes, it wasn't just me (aka, the cry baby)!
But the message was about HOPE. What does that mean to you? Where is your hope? Where does it lie?
Without hope, we have nothing. It leaves us with nothing to look forward to, nothing to wish for, nothing to hope for! And it isn't just related to church; it relates to everything in our lives.
In the message, it related to being the HOPE for others and being the voice for leading others to church and to Christ.
But what about outside of church? What hope are you bringing to others? What hope are you leaving for others? What hope do you have for yourself?
Hope gives us something to look forward to. Hope gives us a reason to continue moving forward. Hope leads us to achievement.
I have so many stories of hope in my life, from finding God again to quitting my government job and doing my own thing. Without hope, I don't know where I would be.
Let's be real. Without hope, I would still be floundering around, trying to figure out my purpose in life, where I was supposed to be, searching for someone to love and for someone to love me.
With hope, I met a beautiful woman who gave me the courage to go back to church. Yes, I needed the courage. I was scared that I'd been away too long, that I wasn't worthy of going back. I had hope and I found exactly what I was looking for. What I needed. I hate to even think where I would be without that hope and without being led back to a life with Christ.
The same can be said for my business endeavors. Everyone...yes, everyone...thought I was bat crap crazy for leaving my government job. Even my husband. But I had hope and the beginning stages of confidence that I was doing exactly what I was meant to do. It was 100% terrifying and I had no idea what was going to happen. But I had hope and faith that amazing things were going to happen in my life. And PS - they have!!
Can you imagine where I would have ended up without that hope? I would have continued moving forward, without a plan, without a purpose. And my life would have passed me by without anything significant or magnificent happening.
So my HOPE is that you find your HOPE! In whatever it is you want in life, in business, in your personal life, that you find the HOPE you are looking for. Move forward with hope and confidence that you will achieve your wildest dreams!
That hope will lead you to making forward progress, to taking the necessary steps to get you where you want to be! Without hope, you will stay exactly where you are, no forward progress, no HOPE of anything actually happening. And why, please tell me why, that would be a good place to stay?
I'm here to tell you that I HOPE you heed my message, that you trust in your HOPES and dreams, that you find your confidence along your journey and let it lead you to greatness.
I had no idea where my journey was going to take me, but I trusted, hoped, and had confidence that I would end up exactly where I was meant to be. And I don't know if I'm exactly where I am meant to be yet, but I know that I am 100% headed there. I wouldn't trade any of it for where I was, even a year ago.
I hope you have an amazing FULL OF HOPE week! And if there's any way that I can help you, please don't hesitate to reach out! I'd love to help you along your journey!!
With love and wellness,
