The most difficult thing is the decision
to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do
anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the
procedure, the process is its own reward. Amelia Earhart, aviator
Finding Hope In Uncertain Times
There is a
lot of uncertainty in life, whether in our personal affairs or in our changing
and unsteady political climate. The strategies that most of us rely on to
contend with such uncertainty tend to be self-defeating. When we face an
uncertain future we often resort to feeling anxious, worrying, complaining, or being
negative about events that may never occur.
But some people
rise to meet uncertain times with hope and resilience. We need to develop such attitudes
if we want to be successful in the face of life’s ups and downs.
having hope mean? Think of how you handle difficult situations. Do you offer
platitudes like, “I hope everything will work out”? Unfortunately, this is just
a way of disengaging or checking out of a difficult situation. True hope comes
from a source much deeper, your core. At your core, there are vital qualities that
help to determine how much hope you yourself feel, as well as what you can
offer to others. Hope is an essential component in facing any type of
uncertainty, from layoffs, to promotions, to moving, and to the current state
of the world.
Romans 15:13 May the God of
hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the
Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. Romans 5:1 Through him we have also
obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we
rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Your generosity is making a difference in our community and around the world!
