Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. (N.K.J.V.)
My life has required a great deal of perseverance, and it has been hope which has fueled my ability to persevere.
Hope breathes my dreams.
Hope unleashes my possibilities.
Hope delivers me from the feeling of defeat.
Hope unlocks freedom.
I’ve had a couple situations this week, which have required me to “shake the dust off my feet.” I am continuing to persevere through difficult and unfamiliar territory. I’m holding onto hope and little by little, I’m beginning to taste freedom.
Do I still have melt downs? Yes.
Do I still get my feelings hurt? Yes.
Is perseverance always easy? No, but onward I go in to the great unknown.
Life is full of uncertainty. It is one step at a time, one day at a time. But I trust in God. He is my hope.
Today, I am wondering if you might share a small word of encouragement in the comments box for someone reading who might be struggling with holding onto hope… What do you think? How do you continue to hold tight to hope? What do you have to say to someone who is struggling?
