I was driving to lunch with a friend this afternoon, and we were talking about something we heard in a Bill Johnson sermon. He said that hope is living in "expectancy of God's creative goodness". Right when she said the definition, my heart got so excited...I actually let go of the steering wheel in a squeal of delight.
I know, I know...safety while driving...hehe.
But, it was exactly in that moment that the Holy Spirit reminded me that truly living with hope...that delightful expectancy of His goodness...means GETTING to let Him steer the situation.
Hard to do if driven by fear and control...but oh such a great relief if we can actually let go.
I needed that reminder today.
Yep, He's so good...the God of HOPE!!! :)
