I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
God has promised to care for me, to do good, to not harm me. Rather than choose despair, moment by moment I choose to hope in Christ, to wait on Him. Holding on to the hope that life will at some point improve requires me to immerse myself in Christ and His words. To give my anxiety over to Him, to wait on Him. Hoping is never easy, but it's so much easier than giving up and giving in to despair. So daily I am choosing Christ and the hope I have in Him.
