Romans 5:3-5 – “We also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit.”
And hope does not disappoint. There is power in our choice. When we choose, we decide whether or not the power of gratitude will be permitted to work out hope within us. What are some areas in which you need hope right now?
Can we challenge you to make a list of those things IN which you are choosing to be grateful, trusting that as you do, perseverance will become character and character will become hope? What a different Thanksgiving it will be this year as you do!
