To Ponder - Hope is faith in action. Hope affirms that we believe not just in the existence of God but that God directly and personally cares for us. When things go well, this is a breeze, but things don’t always go well, and hope becomes more challenging. Where in your life do you need to reaffirm your belief that God cares for and loves you? Where do you need to lean into a divine silence and abide with God?
