Finding Hope through Spiritual Autobiography
Spiritual autobiography, or spiritual memoir, can help you find hope! Journey on Canvas will help you keep a spiritual journal for finding the hope in your story.
I have considered the role of hope in my story. I want to protect the people I love. I want the world we live in to be safe and true. I want my life to give people hope. I’m not sure it will anymore.
Resenting people for their failures is pointless. There's no one to blame. Sure, people have hurt me but it's not their fault that I find myself where I am today. Anyway, I've hurt people too. Life hurts and there's no one to blame. If I don't find some hope I've only got myself to blame. Strangely, there is some hope. For the first time God is my only hope. It's the first time I'm not expecting someone, or something, other than God to be my hope.
I've known God since my childhood. He has been my vital resource in spite of everything that has challenged me. God has been the story inside my story and the energy that has fueled my spiritual autobiography. He has been my reason to share, find hope and encourage others.
What, or who, do you look to for hope? What is the source of true hope? How does God, and the hope He has to give, fit within your story?
