May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 5:13

Coming into recovery, most of us felt beaten up and alone in our struggles. Hope seemed to be a foreign concept and didn’t seem to have fit in with us in how we viewed ourselves or our lives. Many of us understood the concept of hope but it always seemed like some elusive beast that was meant for others to find. We saw our lives through eyes of fatalism and disappointment.

As we progress through recovery we began to see real change and suddenly we experienced something different. Hope was seeping into our lives. At first, hope came in slowly. Then, before we knew what was happening, hope rushed over us like a wave. Sometimes, being overwhelmed by hope can be frightening. Especially when we’ve lived our lives so far removed from hope.

Recovery begins to be a process of confident expectation of good that will never disappoint. We now see hope in everything and in everyone. Where before there was no hope, we now live knowing that in all things, Christ is making a way for hope to thrive. We are the hope of change and of healing. Hope is no longer a foreign concept. Hope propels us to preserve and to move forward with expectation on this amazing recovery journey.

Today’s Prayer

Lord Jesus, my hope is always with You. You’ve never let me down and you’ve always been constant and ever-present. Help me to live in hope and see Your gentleness in everything. Help we to plant seeds of hope where there is only hopelessness. Help me to shine Your Light of Hope on this dark and hopeless world. Amen.
