As I was thinking about what was going to be today’s gratefulness spotlight, I found myself struggling for a minute to come up with something. I knew that my mind was not focused on the right thing when it took me more than a couple minutes to really think about something that I’m truly grateful for. It’s crazy that the biggest thing in my life could be something that I think of last on my list of things to be grateful for. And that thing is hope. Hope is what truly has anchored my soul. It’s what I want to teach Isla every day and model that in my life—that the hope of Jesus truly creates life abundant no matter life’s circumstances because we have the hope that Jesus saves us—we need only believe that to be enough. I find myself trying to think of all kinds of solutions to the problems in my life and in the world and neglect to see that the solution has already been provided. My job is to spread that good news to people so that they have something to also put their hope in. I was embarrassed that it took me a long time of thinking to remember this wonderful thing to be grateful for, but it’s something that is on the forefront of my mind now that I want to share with everyone today, tomorrow, and as long as I live.
