Sometimes the events in our lives are discouraging. Maybe our efforts go unappreciated or doing good seems like a battle against all of the other pressures in the world. We can become jaded, shamed, and begin to lose hope or we can turn to our true source of hope: God!
There are many pressures that challenge us throughout our journeys, but being hopeful should not be a source of shame. God has given us hope through His love for each and every one of us. God has sent His Son to redeem us. Because of God's presence in our lives, we should have hope, we should have reason to be positive, and we should continue to do good and show God's love in everything we do.
Have hope in God, do not be ashamed, and continue to do good!
Thank You for the hope that You have provided in my life. Help me to maintain hope and to always do good in Your name. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
