Grey really is my favorite color to wear. I can’t get enough of it, and my new sweatshirt from Forever 21 is just simple enough to dress up (like I did for church) or down when I’m on the run. Without getting too sappyI like grey because it’s a color that people often characterize with words like drab or dreary and I see it in a totally different light. It’s the perfect neutral, in my opinion, and I’ll I’ll take my positive definition over the others any day.

Similarly, for as long as I can remember, I’ve come across people who have corrected me whenever I used phrases with the word hope…”I hope such and such comes to pass.” “I’m hoping it’ll happen.” etc. Evidently, some people feel it suggests a lack of confidence in the desired outcome. Well, Sunday at church our pastor introduced me to a new way to look at the word hope. He shared with us that the biblical definition of hope is, “A confident expectation of WHAT IS ABSOLUTELY TRUE.”

To say the least, I have marinated in the awesomeness of this new definition and the following quote he shared, “Lord, I have faith in you. I believe my future is better than my past. I’m putting my trust in you.”
This year has been filled with a series of highs and lows, and I rest in the peace of knowing that there are so many sources of positive thinking around me. Never lose sight of the vision God has set before you. Whether that’s regarding your career, your purpose or relationships. I’m hoping to see the fullness of all His wonderful promises in the near future! Be blessed.

Peace, Love & Sunshine -Chelsea
