“One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.” — Eleanor Roosevelt
“Today I will remember that I am necessary to others, that my life is not an accident, and that God has a purpose for me.”
– “In God’s Care*: Daily Meditations on Spirituality in Recovery,” May 19
*As We Understand God
The aforementioned words uplift my soul as I still wonder what I am to be when I grow up, what did I come into this lifetime to accomplish. I still don’t know, despite being in the sixth decade of my life. I do know that I’ve not yet completed whatever purpose Spirit has for me to do because I’m still here.
At times I can feel discouraged and overwhelmed, without joy. I am grateful to always believe in hope; it is what keeps me going.
I especially enjoyed these words from the May 17, 2022 “Science of Mind Magazine”:
“Hope is the bird who feels the light and sings when dawn is still dark.” — Rabindranath Tagore
“If it were not for the divine hope in us, our experiences would be more than the human mind could digest.” — Ernest Holmes
Hope is a game changer, a life saver, for me. Perhaps when I learn what my life purpose is, then it will be my driving force, my joy. In the meanwhile, I’m grateful, oh so grateful, that divine hope lives in me.
