What is Hope?
Hope is knowing that a positive outcome awaits.
Hope is not only expecting a dream to come true, but having a deep assurance that it's within your reach.
Hope is saying you can.
Hope is knowing that you can improve and that you always get better with practice.
Hope is knowing that you can achieve your goals through hard work and persistence.
Hope is looking to the future with joy and having an expectation of better things to come.
Hope is the knowledge that life is everlasting, and that miracles happen every day.
Hope is something that never abandons you. Even when your life is filled with sadness and disappointment, a spark remains inside to help you get through the rough times.
Hope is one of God's greatest gifts to you, because it's the magic that inspires you to keep trying, learning, loving, and living.
to cherish a desire with anticipation
to desire with expectation of obtainment
I think that when we keep hope alive, then hope keeps us alive. I often find myself saying, I hope you have a wonderful day to the people I meet. I hope you are feeling better. I hope you are well. I hope things turn out for the best. I'm hoping that Spring comes soon. Hope is a big part of my life it seems. Where would we be without it?
When the world says, Give up, Hope whispers, Try it one more time.
Our hopes, our dreams and our wishes are so important. If someone tells us not to get our hopes up about something, it squelches any dreams we may have had. Hope is powerful and we don't ever want to take away the hope others may have.
For me hope means the joyful expectation of something good from God.
You've gotta have hope. Without hope life is meaningless.
