As women, men, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, bosses, employees, etc.  we get caught up in the worries of the world and forget that God’s got it all under control.  Even though I know all of this, my mind still wanders thinking “how in the world can He do all things for all people all around the world?”

I have hope and then the doubt creeps in.  And as I was preparing to write today, I felt God really speaking to me that I need to have hope.  What good is life without hope?  If we don’t have hope, we have nothing.  God is hope.  And yes, with man it IS impossible, but with God all things are possible.  (Matthew 19:26).

So today, I choose to have hope.  Hope that those who do wrong will be led to do right.  Hope that those who do not believe will be moved deep down in their heart to believe.  Hope that those who suffer will suffer no more.  Hope that those who worry will worry no more.  Hope that peace and joy can be restored to those who have lost it.  And hope that God will allow us to do great things for Him.

Yes, it is hard to comprehend how it can all happen.  And no we cannot understand it all.  That is why we have to put our trust in the One who knows all, sees all and is in control of all.  He came as a tiny baby in the humblest of settings and He is the One who gives us the only true Hope.  How exciting to find hope in a manger!
