Proverbs 13:12 says “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.”
This is a verse I have read many times but it really jumped out at me today. There have been times in my life that my hope has been “deferred” or postponed. When I have allowed other things to draw my hope away. You know the story, your heart gets weak, sick, tired, and grieved.
BUT when the desire comes — those things that you wish, dream and long for — it is a tree of life.
When we allow hope to be activated in our lives those things we desire become lively and active in our lives.
Many people set goals or resolutions for the New Year. If that’s your cup of tea, let me add some sugar to it (the healthy kind of course). Make a daily choice (I’m talking to myself as well) to allow hope to be activated in your heart.
Each of us has specific things that we are called to do in this life and with hope in our heart, we can’t be stopped!
I challenge myself and you to have HOPE minus the less!
Have a Victorious New Year! Thanks for reading!
