Hopes Up

One of the things I never wanted to hear when I was a kid was the saying, “Don’t get your hopes up!”

I can remember asking my parents for many things including: “Can we… go camping?  go to an amusement park? eat ice cream for dinner? have a birthday party sleepover? have a pet giraffe?”

As you might guess, some of those questions got answered with a yes. And some got answered with the phrase, “Don’t get your hopes up!”

For the most part, I am someone who has eternal hope and optimism. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I think and hope that good will happen. I know that ultimately, my hope is in God and He will provide me with all that is necessary in life – even if it is a pet giraffe!

Bible Gateway passage: Psalm 39:7 – GW

And now, Lord, what am I waiting for?
My hope is in you!


I will continue to choose to get my hopes up and wait on God to show me all the good things He has in store for me! And since I am an adult now, I just might have ice cream for dinner!
