Hope is what keeps us looking up instead of down, even when we’re in the middle of stormy situations. It keeps our hearts from sinking too deep into depression and discouragement and keeps reminding us, “Sooner or later, something good is going to happen.” And because of Jesus, we have real, lasting hope that doesn’t fade away (see Colossians 1:27; 1 Peter 1:3-5). What’s one thing God has done in your life (or someone else’s) that’s restored your hope that He can do more than you ever thought, dreamed or imagined (see Ephesians 3:20)?
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. – Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)
