There is a saying that “Hope is not a plan” and I totally agree. I say it is an end result, a goal. Hope doesn't just happen. A lot of work is required to keep hope alive.
One of my favourite scriptures still remains Romans 15:13, it reinforces my belief about hope, it gives the recipe for hope as maintaining your joy and peace. Once you find what brings you joy and peace, create a plan to maintain those two at all costs on a daily basis.
I find joy in knowing that regardless of what my AUsome son might not yet be able to do at his age, he will be alright. My plan is to make sure that he is trying his best at all times and that he is happy...life is short. I also find peace in living in the moment. The plan is to appreciate and love him for who he is and not who he should be.
I’m very intentional about feeding my faith and starving my fear. Worry and fear of things that may never happen used to cost me my peace, I command my mind to think about whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and admirable. And all things that are excellent and praise worthy in Jesus name according to Phillipians 4:8.
I’m also now more self- aware that I know I thrive in non-toxic environment. Whatever relationship or environment that will cost me my peace and joy is just not worth it and got to go.
To my Super AUsome Mamas, may the almighty God continue to give us the grace to create and maintain a daily plan that would enable us keep hope alive in Jesus name.
Always 💕💕💕 on my mind,
