In Others’ Words: Eternal Hope
There are some days that I need to lean into hope more than other days. Not just for myself … I’m hoping for the ones I love.
Hoping for new beginnings.
Hoping for healing.
Hoping for dreams to come true.
Hoping for life to be easier . . . or more satisfying . . . for the pieces to fall into place in a way that makes sense.
And yet, hoping doesn’t make it so.
Hopes are dashed . . . prayers go unanswered . . . or the longed for yes is a no.
And still I hope. Not in myself, or in some other person to make things right. Sure, sometimes I can fix what’s wrong. Sometimes I can’t. Sometimes someone else knows just what to say or do … and then again, sometimes the one person my hopes are pinned on fails me utterly.
Ever heard the saying “Hope springs eternal?”
The real question is why? Why do I hope? Why do you hope?
My hope is anchored to the eternal God. My hopes aren’t always realized. But God never fails me.
In Others’ Words: What are you hoping for today? Where are your hopes anchored? And if you’d like to share a prayer request, I’d be honored to pray for you.
