Spark of Hope #102 – I’ll never forget the moment when I woke up in the middle of the night to the answer. Call it intuition, call it coincidence, call it God. I believe it was the latter … answering a question I’d repeated since writing the first book. “Why me God … why would you choose me for these painful journeys? That night, all at once, I felt my chest swell as I heard the word “compassion” resonate loud and clear through my mind. More than ever before I understood that helping in life’s difficult journeys wasn’t about me or my abilities. It was about God reflecting the brokenness in my life to perfectly restore others. As I undergo shoulder surgery tomorrow, I’ll lose the use of my right arm for many weeks to come. There in the midst of being perfectly broken, I know the word “compassion” will gain even deeper meaning in my life. I’ll be writing about the insights that keep me going and make Huge Outcomes Possible Everyday — that’s how God’s HOPE operates! 😉
Hope is like a spark; if the conditions are right, it can spread like wildfire. Hope feeds the soul, ignites passion, and inspires others. Tucked inside each of us is a child-like spark that says: never forget to dream, play and imagine. HOPE is the extraordinary spark that says Huge Outcomes are Possible Everyday!
