Hope is this thing that is so rare.

Hope is like letting a blind man see

Hope is light when all else is dark

Hope is being wrong, but being okay.

Hope is when you realize that you are not the most important thing in the world
(What a relief)

Hope is relief

Hope is something given,  but hardly taken
because people choose to rely on themselves, which gives no hope

Hope is life worth living

Hope is loving and loving and loving

Hope is trusting and trusting and trusting

Hope is trusting and loving and trusting that someday you will be loved

Hope is knowing you are loved, so what the hell!

Hope is understanding you have hope

Hope is doing without knowing, but hoping and trusting

Hope is looking up when you feel like looking down

Hope isn’t inside YOU, it is inside HIM

Hope makes life worth living

Hope is for other people

Hope is for the ones who don’t want to hope

Hope is undeserved

Hope lets us live and love

Hope lets people go on without knowing, but with hoping.


After family prayer and getting into the word and talking with the Lord, I am always filled with such joy that it is bursting from me. Today, I realized again how great hope is for us. I have such a hard time trusting the Lord with e v e r y t h i n g. But why should I when he has given us hope? He promises everything will work out, maybe not the way you want it to, but the way it should. I used to think hope was just something to get me through life. However, the Lord is showing me it is so much more. Hope and trust, I am finding, go hand in hand. When we trust in the Lord is when we have hope for not just our future, but for others. Not just for me and my needs, but for humanity. The Lord is going to win in the end.

Psalms 71:5

O Lord, you alone are my hope.
I’ve trusted you, O Lord, from my childhood.

If only I have trusted the Lord from my childhood, than maybe I would understand what hope is more and understand who the Lord is more. Damn, I am blown away by this hope. Right now I feel it, but even when I don’t feel it I will have it because the Lord is in my heart. Wow… I want everyone to feel this hope, this meaning, this relationship.

Ps 118:8

It is better to take refuge in the LORD
than to trust in people.

I apply this verse to myself: it is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in myself.


About elli

I'm trying to "realize the full assurance of hope until the end." To be an "imitator of those who through faith and patience inherit the promise." And spreading the "unchangeableness" and "hope" of God's purpose. Heb. 7
