Spend some time today and reflect on what God’s hope has meant in your life. Here are a few ideas you might consider:

  • Reflect on the way God has offered you hope in the past. Consider making some sort of monument in your home to remind you of them (a pile of rocks, a set of keys, a special Christmas ornament . . .)
  • Write down your expectations for this Christmas, the New Year, or your life in general and consider whether or not they are reasonable.
  • Meditate on the hope God offers you today (start small if you have to!) and spend some time praising Him for it.
  • If you’re struggling to find your hope in Him, pick a couple Bible verses to read and/or memorize.

Lord, remind me of the ways you have offered me hope, and help me to find my hope in You during this busy season and throughout the coming year.
