Happy Friday and thanks so much for stopping by for our Coffee Hour and for our Power Friday! Can you believe Christmas is around the corner? Oops, sorry… There I go again, jumping ahead in life! Grab your coffee and let’s stay in this moment!

I am currently in the trenches with people who are willing to deal with their hurts, habits and hang-ups by looking at the root(s) they are tied to. We have just finished with the Root of Despair, and I am so loving this transforming journey with these fellow transformers! This root was actually a very powerful one for me, probably one that was the easiest to write for it’s the easiest to detect. See, what I mean is that despair is rooted in a lack of hope, and people who lose hope become incredibly desperate.

But there is something rather profound in this whole dilemma of despair, which translates to no hope. Could it be that who/what we put our hope in leaves us bankrupt? Leaves us empty of the will to fight? Threatens our stability? Steals our joy?

Here is a list of the top 5 things we tend to put our hope in. Make a mental check mark if any of these things steal even a little of your hope:

  1. Others/self
  2. Money
  3. Our hurt, habit or hang-up
  4. Education
  5. Career

You can’t fill an internal need with an external person, place or thing! Oh, to be rooted to the Author of Hope because who we put our hope in we tend to love!
