A Spoonful of Hope

The writer’s journey can be filled with rejection and discouragement. If all we see is the rejection or the negative parts of the journey, joy will be absent from our lives.

If you have ever seen Mary Poppins you’ve heard the song, “Just a Spoonful of Sugar” and her advice for helping swallow medicine. We could learn a bit from Mary Poppins.

A spoonful of hope helps to work past the discouragement and rejection. We must trust that God will fill us with hope and help us to continue to dream.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him,                                                                                                       so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Romans 15:13(NIV)

What do you do to help you continue to have hope?

    Hi Michelle,
    I try very hard to speak The Word, sing (not that I have a choir voice) and remember the promises of God. I always try to remind myself not to go by emotions brought on by whatever circumstgance I’m facing (tough to do! but I try).
