Hope is the confident expectation of and longing for the promised blessings of righteousness.
The scriptures often speak of hope as anticipation of eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ.
One of my friends this week just got engaged. I remember sitting with her a year ago as she told me about some guy she met. She wasn't sure if she wanted to go out with him.
A year before that I remember sitting with her and talking about life. The way that it is sometimes unfair, the way that we can do all the "supposed to's" but still end up in a place we weren't expecting. I remember trying to convey to her that no matter what, if we have faith things will work out- one way or another, we will/can be happy.
I am a believer in the diligent, daily, path of perseverance, hope, and faith.
There was a day almost ten years ago from now, when a woman I didn't know told me and others that someday we wouldn't believe how incredible our lives had turned out. I think of that woman almost everyday, I see myself sitting awkwardly on that cold folding chair, I see the flicker of hope sparked within my soul, and today it has all come true.
Today life may seem unfair, with all its "supposed to's" turning into what seems as a black abyss. It may seem that you are different, looked over, un-loved. I am here to tell you that miracles do happen, they happen everyday. The thing about miracles is that they come last, preceding comes faith and first....well, that's hope.
