Tying our hope up in the elusive ‘next thing.’

March 27, 2024

Tying our hope up in the elusive ‘next thing.’

In the hustle of our busy lives, it’s easy to tie our hope up in the elusive ‘next thing.’ 


Our hope often clings to the promise of ‘something’ to restore meaning to our lives. So we fix our eyes and efforts upon a created hope. 


Yet, upon reaching what we hoped for, we quickly realize its transient nature. We’re left searching and longing for something more…


True hope, however, can bring peace rather than anxious striving and endless seeking. 


It is not something we can find or create. Rather, it’s a gift we’re invited to experience daily.  


Every day is brimming with hope. 


Imagine each morning as a treasure chest, eagerly waiting to unveil its purpose-filled treasures to those who open it with hopeful hearts. 


We can wake up filled with confidence in a father who loves us. We can embrace each sunrise with expectant hearts that He is with us and for us. 


Today is the perfect day for a reset…


A day to untether your hope from that elusive ‘next thing’ and ground it where true hope is found …in Him whose love for us will never fail.


“Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you…”  Psalm 143:8


“But those who hope in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31


Prayer: Lord, we too often put our hope in things that will ultimately disappoint. Restore our sense of true hope in You. Remind us that we can live expectantly, even in the in-betweens, because you, Lord, are our hope. When we hope in other things to give us what only you can give, steer our minds and hearts back to you. Thank you that your love is steadfast in our lives, it never ceases and is always with us. Thank you for the Holy Spirit who has been given to us because you love us and desire for us to experience you, always. Give us this day, Lord, a hope-filled and hopeful day.

Letting go of my “boast list”
Letting go of my “boast list”

April 10, 2024

Turns out that like Paul, I’m not as “good” as my spiritual “boast list” makes me appear. I had misunderstood the beauty of the gospel- that salvation is based solely on the goodness of God, not the goodness of me. It is God’s grace that produces good works in us, not the other way around. Friend, let this truth dissolve any stock we have in our ability to produce a spiritual “boast list.” It’s been a humbling journey to let go of my “boast list,” but the grace of Jesus is so much better to h...

The magic that margin unlocks
The magic that margin unlocks

March 20, 2024

Lord, restore our sense of wonder, joy, and adventure. We confess that we have created busy lives with no room to experience the gifts you’ve given us.  We’re often blinded by our busyness to even see the gifts you’ve surrounded us with. As children, we never imagined missing the days of boredom and now we long again for more of those quieter days, greater freedom with time, and a restored soul. Help us to make wise choices with our time, rediscover the gift of the Sabbath in our lives, and l...
