This devotional has a quote written by Zig Ziglar.
Today this is hard for me. I’ve had a hard morning. I’ve already been in tears once over things that are out of my control. So to talk about how hope is contagious is not easy. But it’s true. I’m out of hope in the moment. But I suppose that means all the more I know how easy it is to spread.
The devotional reminds us that has children of God we have every reason to be hopeful. The entry says we should be beacons of encouragement for the world. And I know it’s hard. It’s very hard for me today. But it’s important that children of God should full of joy. We should be because we have eternal life, we have all the promises of the Bible. We have Jesus who died for our sins. We have reasons to be joyful.
The point I want you to take away from this mixed up devotional is that as children of God we have the reason to be hopeful. We are being watched, whether we know it or not. And we need to be showing God’s love through our words and actions. We need to lay aside our feelings and just live for God. We need to put aside what we feel and do what God would have us do.
We need to find the good that we can in the day, and celebrate that good.
