We ended the year with another heart wrenching adoption circumstance. A heavy and painful decision, circumstances that shine a spotlight on what is broken and dark and seemingly hopeless in this world. Even still, as we jump into 2020, we have deep hope. Our hope is not grounded in a completed adoption, changed habits, a better me or even in spiritual growth. Hope is only as strong as its object. Our real hope is Jesus. We can move forward in 2020 with unshakeable hope because whatever circumstances await us this year, God is already there, He is still faithful and He will never fail. Even if we can't feel it or our circumstances tell us it can't be, hope will still win in 2020 and for all of eternity.
