Where hope begins…

We’re two weeks into the year. And somehow, the middle of January often seems to bring a heavy dose of reality to me. Vacation’s over, I’m not having fun getting back into the rhythm of work, bills arrive in the mail. You know… all that fun stuff.

And then there’s all those resolutions that we are already failing at.   

I get reminded of just how human and weak I really am.  

But this is where the hope begins, isn’t it? It’s in realizing that something inside of us longs for more than we can ever be on our own. Something inside of us not only longs for it, but tells us that life isn’t right without more.  

This is the hope of the gospel. We were made to live and move and have our being in the One who holds the power of the universe.  

My prayer this year is that both you and I may come to know even more “the fullness of Him who fills all in all.”
