I can see clearly now the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day…Johnny Nash

For your consideration…

While our message came in via the song, “I Can See Clearly Now,” the focus of our message in on one part of it.

Our focus is on the word obstacles. We tend to consider obstacles as something negative, something that hinders our progression. Our message today wants us to change our perception and consider obstacles as positive.

Consider obstacles as hug that keeps us from moving forward. Instead, we are drawn to see and feel what is much closer to us. They block us from searching too far ahead of ourselves and be present in what is surrounding us at this moment in time.

Obstacles prevent us from leaping over all of those necessary lessons we need further down our road. They are a blessing.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.


Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take…

-Affirm…“I am loved.”

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Embrace the obstacles.
