Thought for the Week - Hope

9th February 2018

Thought for the Week - HopeOur thought for the week from our academy chaplain this week is focused on the theme of 'Hope'.

Thought:
How much impact does our mindset have on our experience of life? We all have many messages or beliefs that play over in our minds everyday, but are they positive, hopeful, life-giving?

Carmelite monk Brother Lawrence has this to say about the virtue of hope; “Many things are possible for the person who has hope. Even more is possible for the person who has faith. And still more is possible for the person who knows how to love. But everything is possible for the person who practices all three virtues.”

How much would we see as possible if we were more hopeful?
The verse above is God’s message of hope for us today.

Prayer:
Dear God, thank you that you are a God of Hope who speaks to us words of encouragement and hope daily. Lift our thoughts, and hearts that we might be more hopeful. Amen
