Morning Thought: Do you remember those inflatable toy punching bags? You could punch them and they bounced back up because the bottom was weighted. In life, hope is like the ground-weight that keeps you bouncing back. You may have fallen into a muddy pit of emotional darkness, but it’s critical that you put your hope in God. You’ll rise again when you see things from God’s perspective. “For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again, But the wicked stumble in time of calamity” (Proverbs 24:16, NASB).
