Town Hall For Hope
full of worry. I love the passage in Matthew 6:27 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? The Bible has over 300 passages that say "fear not", "do not fear". Do you think God was trying to tell us something. If the Bible says something, it's pretty important. If it's repeated, it's probably VERY important. So then, I choose hope. I choose to live a life where I expect good things to happen, a life full of joy and happiness. Now that does not mean that situations don't bother me, or that I have no compassion. No, to choose hope means that I choose to live a life full of compassion, love, empathy and courage. My faith should be an example to every person I encounter. So today, I know that you might be thinking about money, family situations, relationships and other potential areas of struggle. Know that God loves you. Know that you have a loving church full of people you can lean on during tough times. Go in peace and go with God and choose hope!
