Ignite Your Morning – Hope Fountains

Today I am not starting with an “up” statement, but trek with me here: Suicide happens when a person believes that there is no longer any hope and that their circumstances have become so overwhelming that there is no way out.

I’m here to tell you something: There is hope for EVERY person in EVERY situation.

A few months ago, I was at a meeting and a friend said “we need to be hope fountains to this community.” Wow, is he right! I haven’t been able to get that sentence off my heart since! It’s my responsibility to release hope over Freeport one person at a time. Huge undertaking, right? How in the world can I do that?

The challenge is this: How can I ignite hope in every person that I interact with today?

Hope is the confident expectation that good is coming. So what if we consciously pointed out the wins in the lives of the people we meet and influence each day? Celebrating, having fun and laughing all are hope releasers.

Sometimes it can be difficult to see, but the truth is that there is hope for every person in every situation. I don’t know about you, but I am going to choose to be a hope fountain in this place!
