Chapter 12, Page 5, Book 12

What's 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.

Wednesday, December 5th: HOPE

Everyone needs it, everyone should give it and everyone thrives when they have it. What's it? It's hope.

Our faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Jesus Christ poured out His life as a sacrifice for our lives so that we might have eternal hope; so that we might be encouraged in our faith to trust in everything Jesus said and did for us. Hope in the Son of God. Hope in His Sacrifice. Hope in His love. And hope in all of His promises this Advent Season

God can do with the smallest things, the most unlikely of people, in the most hopeless of circumstances. I think that is part of the wonder of the Advent Season..

Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us. 

Samuel Smiles
