During this crisis that we are experiencing, the greatest thing we need is HOPE — Hold On: Possibilities Exist. HOPE — Hold On: Pain Ends.
Whatever we may be experiencing during this time, we all need hope: hope for better things to happen, hope for our children, and hope for our families. We all need hope to keep going and to look for the possibilities that are out there. Without it, all of this could be overwhelming. So, we need hope in our lives.
People today believe that happiness is about getting what we want, but it consists of learning to be satisfied with what we have and what we don’t have.
Few things are necessary to make the wise man happy, while no amount of material wealth would satisfy a fool.
— Og Mandino
A common mistake is to search outside for happiness. Happiness is unique, depending on each individual. What makes one happy may make another miserable. So, we need to look inside ourselves, and pray and ask God to help us. Because we know He is always with us, we can be hopeful for today and tomorrow, and be happy. If we keep our minds stayed on Him, we will all remain hopeful and happy through the worst of circumstances. No matter the crisis, we will remain hopeful.
You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you (Isa. 26:3 NLT)!
Just a thought,
