Hope is an emotional state which can promote a belief in a positive outcome for events and circumstances in your life. Hope can be what sustains you in the face of despair in your life. It is not simply a desire for things to be better, but is the unseen change that can come about from your belief the change can occur.
Hope can give you the energy to strive to move away from the demands of those things in your life that cause you despair. It is unique, as you are and your own tenacity can help keep you connected to hope. Hope is that confident expectation that a particular desire you have will be fulfilled.
Hope is the belief that what is needed can be had and enables you to cope while giving you a reason to carry on. In praising the Lord hope is not lost as these verses say.
Psalms 16:9 (KJV) “Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope”.
Psalms 38: 15 (KJV) “Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee”.
Proverbs 6:19 (KJV) “Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil”.
Proverbs 19:18 KJV) “Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying”.
