The more troubled the world becomes, the more important it becomes to be optimistic….

Many people today avoid national and global news. The awareness of how wretchedly human beings treat each other leads us to hopelessness in altering unjust and harsh situations. We know we cannot stop there. As Christians we are called to be people of hope, to the world of global peace, friendship and prosperity. Contemplation offers a central way to develop and retain optimism. When we pause to pray, meditate and send forth love into the world, the vibrations of our prayerful hearts touch others. Studies have shown  that positive energy and what goes forth from our minds and hearts influence the outcome.

In Jeremiah 29:11, we read:

‘I know the plans I have for you’, says the Lord ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’

Prayer:  Glory be to God whose power working in us can do infinitely more than what we can ask or imagine.  Ephesians 3:20-21
