"Hope is putting faith to work when doubting would be easier." ~ Author unknown
It's the end of the week.
I don't know what kind of week you've had. Mine has been crowded with reasons to smile (like my wedding anniversary) . . . and a few reasons for tears.
Vertigo, wretched experience that it is, came back. Knocked me off balance--literally.
I'm beginning to wonder if vertigo is going to play a continual game of hide 'n' seek with my health. Do I have to look over my shoulder and wonder when it's going to reappear? And when it will disappear again?
And then I reminded myself that my word for 2011 is hope.
I can either have hope in this situation.
Yes, doubting would be easier.
I'm clinging to hope.
The photo is one I took in Mexico. It's a sunrise--a reminder of one of my favorite Scriptures:
The LORD's lovingkindnesses indeed never cease,
For His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
Great is your faithfulness. (Lam. 3:22-23 NAS)
Did you have a rough week? Struggling with doubt? May you find reason for hope!
