Today, I am thinking about hope.
I have heard so many truly sad stories this Christmas season. A few of them on the news, but most of them firsthand. Stories of jobs lost... love lost... dreams shattered.
It seems to me that so many people are struggling, and doing their very best, but it all feels like we're getting nowhere. And sometimes it all just feels so heavy.
There have been moments when it has felt like having Christmas in the middle of all of this is just adding insult to injury.
Which is why, when I heard this song from Brandon Heath, the message of it really struck me. I've been listening to it on repeat today. Because it makes my heart lighter and reminds me of the many reasons I have, to have hope.
Which is really what the whole message of this season is all about.
May you have hope in your heart today.
