Psalm 71:14 As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
Morning Prayer: I am grateful for this affirmation this morning. I have many times felt as if all hope was lost but I know it was not because I live in the unwavering hope that is instilled in me when I see the beauty of this world and the good that people do when living in Your ways. God, today I pray that we can all see past the subterfuge of negativity and fear to the beauty that is within those very things and the goodness and love that these challenges illuminate. I live in hope because every day I am given proof that my faith is not unfounded. The beauty of this day and the limitless love I can share at any moment is the gift I could not give myself. I praise You for the fidelity You have shown us in Your love through our life's journey. God I pray that we can all know that hope does spring eternal. May it be so.
Morning Focus: I will look for God’s love in all I see, hear and feel today. I will know that challenges are the opportunities to see God’s love illuminated.
