If there is one thing we know about problems, it is that they will always exist. Even when we overcome one problem or find victory over a certain circumstance, another problem is surely to follow. That is why hope is such a crucial part of faith. It is something we need to pray for and practice, even on the best of days. Hope is a journey that we have to continue on with every day.
To end out our journey this week, although the journey has just begun, I want to leave you with a few verses to include in your quiet time over the coming days.
I am headed out to Connecticut today for a huge womens conference, and I would covet your prayers for God to be glorified, and hearts to be changed. Have a wonderful weekend friends!

Isaiah 40:28-31 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
