Hebrews 10:23, NLT: “Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.”

There are often times wherein we feel optimistic as we look ahead. Each new day, new week, new year can inspire new hope and new expectation as we consider what could be. For the believer in Christ, there are many things to look forward to; many things that should stir an optimistic flame in the furnace of our souls. While there are so many around us who desire to make changes to their lives or themselves, but often do not know where to begin; those who know Christ can find in Him all they need to develop better habits, make changes to their lives, or turn over a new leaf. In many ways, we do not have to be like those who do not have hope. In Christ Jesus, we always have hope for a brighter and better lived tomorrow. We need only ask for His help, and submit to His will. In so doing, we can find that each new year, new week, or new day has much to look forward to.
