Most words have multiple definitions and the same is true of both within the title today. “A feeling of trust” is one definition of hope. While something that “exists in large amounts” defines abounds. My current state definition is aptly described by both of those words.

I currently possess a strong(profound) feeling of trust in the fruition of my current endeavors. Before moving to this country I possessed none of the items needed. Today, I only possess a couple. If there are 50 items on the list, I currently have about four. However, the most important item can’t be put to paper. It cannot simply be listed and acquired like the other items. It must be developed over time, through trials, tragedies, and turbulence. The unlisted item is “hope,” the seedling of faith.

Today, Sunda, February 16, 2020, I am grateful that:

My trust in Him is as great as it’s ever been. By all accounts, I should have quit or grown bitter. Without “hope” that certainly would have been my story, yet I continue to move forward. Unapologetically, enthusiastically convinced that “I’m His favorite.”

After months of silence, I received a text from a great friend. We’ve led busy lives and have relentlessly chased our purpose. Typically we only speak 3 or 4 times per year and during those times of absence, I miss the candid camaraderie, kinship, and feedback only provided through the loving words of “Spouse Johnson.”

I’m uncomfortable again. It’s a feeling of familiarity and generates a sense of urgency, possibly desperation. I’ve learned this about myself over the years and I’ve adjusted to the fact it’s part of my nature at the moment. When this feeling is no longer needed, I’ll eliminate it, but for now, I’m grateful it’s returned.

What creates urgency in your life?

Who do you miss not speaking with?

Who offers candid, unsolicited, and truly objective feedback you value?

When’s the last time you spoke with them?

Are you filled with “hope” for your future?

How do you express your beliefs in the manifestation of the things for which you hope?

If you feel this will help you or someone you know, please share to your timeline.
