The Most Important Ingredient Needed in 2019

I've seen too many people just trying to survive.

Trying to survive from pay-check to pay-check.
Trying to keep the family united.
Trying to remain positive in dire circumstances.
Trying to make lemonade from lemons.

We're not created to simply survive. You know what I mean, simply make it from one week to the next and with glazed-over eyes watch another seven days roll on-by.

We can shift ourselves out of a survival mentality.

I want to give you one thing, that as you enter 2019, will help you not just survive, but to thrive.

Without this one ingredient 2019 will look bleak. You and I need it.

The most important ingredient needed in 2019 is: hope.

Hope causes us to look at the world in a positive light.
Hope causes us to see the glass as half-full.
Hope means we might give something another shot.
Hope means that when the rubber hits the road, we won't give up, and we'll keep moving forward.

As a follower of Jesus, I have hope. Hope in the person of Jesus Christ. Hope in the eternal life that springs up within me through his very Spirit. Hope that Jesus is who he says he is and that I will rise with him one day in glory.

Hope in Jesus Christ means I can soar into 2019 with my eyes lifted, my shoulders back and my focus clear.

I move into 2019 with hope. Will you?

Pass this on to someone today. God bless.
