Proverbs 13:12 (KJV) Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.
Are you an optimistic, hopeful, enthusiastic Child of God? You should be. After all, as a believer, you have every reason to be optimistic about life here on earth and life eternal. As C. H. Spurgeon observed, “Our hope in Christ for the future is the mainstream of our joy.”
But sometimes, you may find yourself pulled down by the inevitable demands and worries of life here on earth. If you find yourself discouraged, stressed, or both, then it’s time to take your concerns to God. When you do, Our God will lift your spirits and renew your strength. Do you need a lifting from the Lord!
Today, make this promise to yourself and keep it: commit to be a hope-filled Child of God. Think optimistically about your life, your profession, your family, and your future.
Point to ponder- Whatever you do take time to celebrate God’s glorious creation. And then, when you’ve filled your heart with hope and gladness, share your optimism with others. They’ll be better for it, and so will you.
