When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

31 Days of Hope - Day 19

Now, set your timer, clear your head, for five minutes to just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back over at Lisa Jo's and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. 

OK, are you ready? Won’t you please give me your best five minutes on:::

Hope can be hard for me to find.  I have discovered that I have to look within myself for it.  It is not enough to wish for it, or want it.  I have really have to focus on it.  I can get so caught up in my feelings and what is going on around me, that I have a hard time getting past the trial of the moment, to find the hope.  It is hard to look at the positive possibilities for the future if I can't get my thoughts past the present.  I am learning to let go, forgive, and move on.  I wish that I could say that it gets easier, but I just keep telling myself, "He never promised us it would be easy, He only said it would be worth it."  Somehow, I believe, that if I keep looking up, it will be worth it in ways that I can't even imagine.  
Now it is your turn.  What can you write in just five minutes?


  1. In the hands of our Redeemer; NOTHING is wasted. Forgiveness is worth it and so is looking to Him. Blessings!

  2. Amen.
    I know that feeling...trying to push through to hope.
    Believing with you that HE is in the middle of it all with purpose and a plan!
