It seems that all my brain has the power to do these days, outside of the normal things I need to accomplish, is just write for 5 minutes.  So today, I’m going to write for 5 minutes on my own word choice and hit publish.  No edits.  No backtracking.  Just my own personal train of thought. . . . .here we go.

Hope seems like such a big word to me these days.  There are times I feel I am full of hope and yet, for the most part, I find myself struggling to hang on to just a thread of it.  I know the promises.  I see the project.  And like Pastor Scott shared on Sunday, sometimes we have to maintain faith, maintain hope even through the difficulties of seeing the completed work.  I think that’s where I’ve been lately–struggling with the project, the process.  I remember when hope seemed so easy to have, to maintain.  Lately I feel as if I have had to really stir it up inside so that it doesn’t die out.  Ever had those moments – the ones where you feel like if you don’t stir just one more time, it will disappear?  Thankfully I realize that it’s a moment – a passing moment – and I know there is hope. I know there will be a fulfillment of every promise He has ever made.  So I will wait patiently.  I will work diligently.  I will trust unswervingly.  And I will hope.

STOP

Thanks for sharing!
