HOPE

If there was a billboard on my forehead that broadcast my current mood it would read: HOPEFUL.

God is in the business of restoring hope…and He’s been doing it with me personally big time.  The following are a few reasons why I am full of hope.

*My pastor Ron, has a renewed vision and passion for reaching the lost. 

*I have witnessed firsthand God orchestrate unity and teamwork among the “different ministries” at Sunset, and help us reveal that we are all one team with one mission, working together in our areas of calling.

*He is restoring my personal desire to be used as His witness.

*I am watching Him restore hope in others around me.

A good friend of mine often talks about the difference between fighting against something, vs fighting for something.  Right now, it feels like the church that I am blessed to be a part of is fighting for something, fighting for impact inside and outside of its walls, striving to be a church that pleases God and is inline with His purposes.  It is a good feeling, and it fills me with hope. 

Romans 15:13: 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.
