Last night around midnight, Mark asked me what hopes I have for 2018. I wasn’t feeling very hopeful, but after he shared his, the only one I could come up with was:
“I will choose to have more joyful moments than sorrowful ones.”

This morning I am adding, “That I will look up, more often than I look inward; and in doing so, I will give to others out of my brokenness instead of allowing myself to spiral downward into the abyss of my negative thoughts.”

What about you? Is there some hope that you have for 2018? I pray God will use whatever is broken in you (and in me) to bring hope to others this year.
