Today I Have Hope

Today I have hope. Today I have hope that I will get past this battle of depression that holds me back. Today I have hope that I will be a better father. Today I have hope that I will have a great weekend with my wife. Today I have hope that that I will not listen to the enemy who wants to destroy me. Today I have hope that I will not be cynical. I will not be negative. I will not complain. Today I have hope that I will look at things differently. Today I have hope because I have been given a new heart and a new set of eyes. My hope doesn't come from me, Dr. Phil, Oprah or even Joel Osteen. My hope comes from Jesus Christ who holds me in the palm of His hand. Today I have hope because I know what happens at the end of the Book. Today I have hope because He accepts me "Just As I Am" and thinks I'm actually pretty cool even though I'm really messed up.

My dear friend @LuvStomp posted this video clip on his blog. This song is a song of hope. I pray that the song below and Jesus Christ bring you hope today.

    You make me smile ear to ear right now, Mike. Thank you. :D

    You also remind me of this:

    "The next time the devil reminds you of your past, remind him of his future."
