It has been said that we are not the sum or our circumstances but the sum of the choices we make in those circumstances. I have been knocked down but will stand up. I have been blindsided but will gain new vision. I have been suppressed but will live in freedom. I have lost but God will restore what the enemy has taken. I am weak but in weakness I will find the ability to depend not on myself but on God and he will make me strong. I am broken but will become stronger in the healing process. I have been mistreated but have gained a new understanding of grace and forgiveness. Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. Hope is the feeling of expectation and desire for a certain things to happen. What are you hoping that God does in your life and through your life? Believe, hope for the things not seen. Hope with expectation!
