Disappointment disconnects us from hope
 

If you’re like me, then you’ve probably said these things at some time. Then we just press on with life and do the best we can. Question is, do you see your life as a glass half empty or a glass half full? Are you thankful for what you do have instead of whining about what you don’t have? All too often we want more, when we can’t handle what we’ve got.  Read your Bible today in 1st Thessalonians 5:16 to 18.

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in ALL circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus

Truth is friends, life is not perfect, people are not perfect and when we strive to make life perfect we set ourselves up for disappointment. Disappointment disconnects us from hope. Allowing disappointment to control us is like pulling up the anchor of your ship and drifting aimlessly. HOPE is the anchor for your soul, your soul is your mind, will and emotions. Does your soul have an anchor today or is it drifting dangerously towards the rocks of destruction?

Read your Bible today in Hebrews 6:19. I’m not talking about worldly hope, I’m talking about spiritual hope! This Hope covers us, loves us, leads us, provides for us and causes us to trust God with every moment and every day and every situation! This Hope is only found by surrendering our lives to Jesus Christ and intentionally pursuing a relationship with God. Mathew in the Bible tells us to “Seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you” Mathew 6:33. It sure sounds like God wants us to drop our anchor in the right place. Where is your anchor today?

God bless you heaps
