What situation in life causes you to feel less than hopeful? Invite God to change your perspective on this situation and thus begin to heal you.
God of hope, who transforms our doubts and insecurities into opportunities for growth, forgive us for the times when we have unintentionally reduced your power to our understanding of what is possible. Thank you for sending your word in the example of Jesus, and inspire us to share your hopeful word with others. Amen.
~ Becky Ullom Naugle, Director for Youth and Young Adult Ministries
