I daresay that we all have that with the ebb and flow of good and bad days with our kids. I will say that even when I'm about all in...there is still that seed that will not extinguish within me for the possibilities that are within our amazing kids, and that is hope. In lunching with him on his break that day, he continued to use verbiage to illustrate that we all should continue to push...and hope... for more and more advancements all the way around for this ever increasing population.
I know that hope can be hard to find on some days, perhaps especially in starting a new school year...but hang tough! I have found that with the Lord by my side, and holding me up when I need it...I literally cannot be without hope for what can be. So! I hope this verse blesses you and helps you remember who can give you the power to come up with that hope!
"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."
Blessings and Hope for you!
