All We Have Is Hope

We all should have hope, even when our days get dark as night all we have is hope. According to Dictionary.com Hope is defined as the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best. I know not everything turns out the way we believe to be the best, but we do not know what road we are on in life until we take the first step. I takes hope to keep traveling down the road and not turning back.

What We Believe our Destination is and What God has Planned for Us

index-14 I do not know about you but I have had some bumps in my life. I have taken wrong turns, ran into obstacles, and even stopped because I was not sure what to do. What I do know to do now is trust God.

 –Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Ever since I was a child I had a picture with this scripture on it. It has taken me a long time to understand what it means. If we have faith in Him we will always have hope.

When we are making plans in our life we need to make sure to let Him in on it. He will let us know if He approves our if He does not. I do not believe He is going show disapproval by having our parents, spouse, or siblings arguing with us on what we have planned to do. I do believe that our subconscious, that voice in our head, tells us, “It is not a good idea at least not right now.” then that is God speaking to us. We need to listen to God and take his advice or we will not live life to the fullest like He wants us to.

When in Darkness…

A Ray Of Hope Quotes How To Recognize And Protect Yourself From Manipulation | Darkness When in darkness there is a ray of hope. Life does get pretty dark at times, sometimes so dark you think you will never find your way out. What you need to do is open your eyes and find the ray of hope deep in your soul. Trust me I have been there.

I am going tell you why. It was about five years ago I lost my job because I did not follow a procedure correctly. Now about six months before that I had a minor stroke and I lost some memory and had, and still do, some thinking of words issues. Well my former employer did not believe me about the memory issues, but I did win my unemployment. Even though it was a horrible job I was angry, depressed, in fear of not be able to pay my bills, and blamed myself for even applying for the job in the first place. To top it off my parents did not support me emotionally. It took me a couple months to start looking for a job. My mom told me I better start looking for a job the next day. I was angry for losing my job and now angry at her for lack of compassion. All I could see was darkness. I even thought the only way out was suicide. If I did not grow up in a Christian School and go to church I may not be typing this blog now. It took me awhile to stop being furious. I am still a little angry for getting fired but I think I take it too personal.

What got me through? It was Hope. I started going back to church. I went to the church that was the leader of the school I graduated from. I got back together with a few friends, my choir teacher, and my pastor and principal. I haven’t been for awhile because of work and overtime. I still watch Turning Point with Dr. David Jeremiah on Ion Television when I don’t go to church.  I use to feel I was going nowhere and now I feel I am moving forward. I do not know where I am going now but I will find out when I am ready. What I do have, that I did not have five years ago, is hope. Hope is all we need to move forward in life. If you ever feel you are down and never moving forward then trust God and that ray of hope will shine.

Patrick Stewart to Return as Star Trek‘s Jean-Luc Picard And The Internet Is Pretty Excited — TIME

I don’t know about you but I started watching Star Trek when I was a kid because my mom loved the original Star Trek. I liked the original Star Trek movies, but didn’t care for the shows. I really like Star Trek: The Next Generation  and loved their moves so much more. Captain Picard was a great character. He was a firm leader, kind man, gentleman, and even a romantic now and then. I can’t wait till it comes back. I wonder who else  may return.

The internet couldn’t be happier about the latest Star Trek news. In a thrilling announcement, Patrick Stewart, everyone’s favorite British actor, revealed that he would be returning to television in a new Star Trek series based on his iconic character Captain Jean-Luc Picard. The franchise series, which will run on CBS All Access, will focus…

Promoting voter ID, Trump claims ID needed to buy groceries

President Trump says we should need ID to vote like we need ID at a grocery store. It happens every time for me I get carded for writing a check and sometimes for using my debit card. When I go to a store and by beer they always card me because of the laws in Pennsylvania. I do not know about your state, but I think it is the way it should be done. I do not want illegitimate votes going through and getting a President that will hurt our country. I know if every state required photo ID to vote then it will help the corruption in our voting system. Do you agree with me? Tell me what you think. Please like and share.
