Do You Think About Hope?


Now this isn't one of those positive thinking seminar slogans you've heard of. I'm just asking. Do you think about the preferred future that God has planned for you?

I love music and listen to all kinds. I love Christian music and listen to it as much as possible. Now you may think I'm odd - and I'm not going to disagree with you - but as a general rule, the last song I heard before I go to bed is the first song I hear in my head when I wake up. Now if I've been traveling and get home late, ate at some restaurant on the way in, and they had some radio station blaring in the background - you got it!

Now this isn't as disturbing as you think it is. If I don't like the tune in my head I just sing one I like better and that's the end of that. Have you ever tried that with you dreams? Philippians 4:8 says Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

If all you think about is how disastrous your life is, how bad things have been, how bad things are going to be and ever other depressing thought about how your future might be - change your tune! Your hope is rooted in God's plan for your life. Ask Him what He has in store for you! You might be surprised to find out, He believes in you more that you think He does.
