As you reach nightfall, consider all the things you've hoped for over the daytime hours.
Chances are....the list is long.
AND chances are the list of hopes that actually came to pass over the daytime hours is probably short.
The reality of expectations not met shouldn't be surprising. Life and people and situations are bound to disappoint. There are no guarantees in this ever changing world we live in.
Best to learn to set your hope on the living God who is always with you and who never changes.
*No need to hope He'll hear you, help you, hold you.
*No need to hope He'll lead you, look out for you, love you.
*No need to hope He'll carry you, caution you, comfort you.
*No need to hope He'll steer you, shape you, support you.
It's simple. Hope in HIM who will be with you throughout the daytime hours and when you reach nightfall, you will find that as you put all the details of the day — the good, the bad, the ugly — in the perspective of eternity, He did not disappoint!
