Thoughts for Reflection

  1. In what and in whom do you place your hope? 
  2. If you are willing, make a list of what you are thankful for today. 
  3. How has God been gracious to you? 
  4. What blessings do you have that you did not earn or that you don’t deserve? 
  5. Identify one way life has been unfair to you, and apply the pointers below to address that concern. 
  • Take time to feel the sadness and grief of the loss that has come to you. 
  • Take time to ask God or someone else to help you deal with what has been unfair.
  • Take time to ask yourself if you are willing to accept the help that is available to you to deal with times when life has been unfair. If you are willing, name a specific way in which you will accept that help.
  • Take time to determine how you are willing to let yourself hope again in spite of the hurt you have suffered. Consider whether your hope is for something that will be of help to you.
  • Take time to find as many things as possible to be grateful for, to give thanks for, in this unfairness that has come to you, being clear not to dismiss the pain that this has caused in your life. What do you discover as you look for opportunities to be grateful?
