I've got my hopes set high!

I have decided to hope again. I know that sounds pretty serious, huh? Well, after the house thing the enemy tried to convince me to not get my hopes up again. That I would just be disappointed again. After sorting through all my thoughts and emotions I will rest on the facts. God is good. He has good things for me. I have decided I WILL get my hopes up again. In fact, I have decided to get my hopes even higher. Truth be told, there were some things about the house I wasn't crazy about. The draw was that the gratification was immediate. I didn't want to wait any longer. But I will. I have decided I will not settle. I will hope for something even better than the last. To the world that probably seems crazy, but I know that my God WILL do exceeding, abundantly above what I could ask or imagine. And also, thank you all my beloved friends for encouraging me to keep the faith, assuring me that I didn't look like the ass I felt, and loving me through my funk. I love each and every one of you so much. So it could be a year or maybe five, but I will not settle. That is the kind of God I serve. One who gives you the desires of your heart. And I know this because He is my delight. So the stand of faith continues.

I stand in faith too for the very best God has for me. I admire you and I would be so excited about a new grand baby!

It is good to hope. The enemy would like to lead you to believe that being let down is to have a lack of faith. I have learned to get my hopes up. Faith and hope work together.
