If you are like me, somewhere in your house, or your office, or on your desk, on maybe in your pocket, you keep an object that is very special to you.  It's most likely a reminder of something very meaningful to you, a symbol of hope. It could be a reminder of a momentous change in our lives, when something unexpectedly happened that gave us change.  It could be a memory of a past happier time that you believe will be restored one day soon.  God gave the rainbow as a symbol that he'd never destroy the world again by water!

Today, find a symbol of hope.  You know what it could be.  Then place in prominently in your presence, a public place you can see every day.  Every day look at it, ponder its meaning and remember past moments of victory.

Then feel hope surge in your heart!  Symbols that produce hope…they are very important in life.
