"Hope is the voice that God uses to speak to our hearts instead of our heads!"Unknown
I don't actually know where I heard this quote but it has stuck with me for so long. I am an analyzer by nature, so many times I can "think" my way out of something. It wasn't really until we started Imagine Hope 7 years ago that I realized this quote to be true.
Many times we may be called to do something that seems impossible or unrealistic, yet we know in our hearts it is the right thing to do. It may be leaving a difficult, dysfunctional relationship where someone refuses to change. Or it could be, when we are in a comfortable place, being called for something different and having to leave something good to achieve it. This is when God speaks hope to our hearts instead of our heads. We must be open to these moments, and yes, think things thru, but also have faith that if we are being called, there is hope and God will get us thru and make it happen. If we do our part. I'm SO glad we did!
I've enjoyed the quotes from the other Therapists this week- thank you for your inspiration. I look forward to Joleen's tomorrow. Thank you for reading.
