Morning Thoughts

From Hope to Obedience

If you are like me, you have quite a few people on your prayer list right now. My heart aches for so many. This spotlights how blessed I really am. These days before the new year, I’m focusing on how I can be obedient to God. This word is on my heart a lot and I believe it is from God.

Every year there is a word that God gives me to focus on. This year’s word has been hope. As our church prepares for Christmas, the last sermon series has been on hope. Biblical hope. As I focused on trusting God and hoping in Him during this tumultuous year, I didn’t understand this was Biblical hope, but I like this title. It’s not like I hope you have a good day, but I have hope in God. I trust Him and know He is in charge despite what the world would have me believe.

My blogging week is ending today. I want to lay out a blogging outline for next week as Christmas approaches. Not sure what I will do yet, or even why this is on my mind. Just sure God will show me the “what and why.” Lifting my cup of tea on this cloudy morning and feeling very hopeful about what God will do in the coming year.
