// How Do You Hope? //
Hope is defined as “a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen, a feeling of trust, to want something to happen or be the case.” Have you ever stopped and asked yourself how do you hope? Where does your hope come from? Have you ever found yourself in the middle of a situation that just felt impossible? Like you could not see a way out or imagine it getting any better? Like the very breath has been knocked out of your chest. It is gut wrenching. It feels like the entire universe has stopped….paused……time has stood still. I know what that feels like. It hurts. It’s painful. It brings you to your knees.
I want to encourage you. Take a moment. Right now, where you are at this very moment while you read this. Take a deep breath in through your nose. Now exhale slowly through your mouth. Minimize distractions momentarily. Think about nothing else. Now close your eyes and visualize the word hope. Sit for a moment and do this for as long as you need to.
Hope. What does that mean to you? What does that feel like to you? Where does it come from? Maybe you feel like you are all out of hope. Maybe you aren’t sure where hope comes from and you need that right now in your life. Maybe you are hanging on to hope with all you have but you feel like you are slowly sinking. I know where my hope comes from. My personal hope comes from the Lord. You can have hope too.
