Hope is a seemingly small word, but she packs a big punch
Hope seems fleeting at times, especially in certain seasons of life. I catch glimpses of hope. At times, I even catch glimpses of what I am even hoping for. There are days where those glimpses seem to fill me up with more hope and motivation, and there are days where hope is silent. I experience times when I have hope in a moment, and in that same breath feels, like I got the hope knocked right out of me.
I am learning that hope is not meant to be seen or understood, for who hopes in what is seen? It is the knowledge that unseen things are happening, and the mystery of the unseen that evokes hope.
Hope requires faith and faith hope.
“Faith is being sure of the things hoped for and certain of the things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1)
Hope is the desire we have that something we want can and will happen. Hope is also the desire that things will turn out for the best, even if it does not look anything like how we hoped.
