“Brothers, we do not want you to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope”.-1 Thessalonians 4:13
Hope and despair are found in the hearts of people and not in circumstances. Love is so important because it causes hope to triumph. When things are at their darkest, hope rises through love to light the darkness of night. There is no room for despair; God has enough love to avert it. He has woven hope into nature of man so that we can trust in the future.
When all is hopeless, it is hope that keeps us going. Hope strengthens the soul so that we can hold on to eternity and on to love of God. His love is infinite; He gives us hope out of love.
“Lord, may I never believe that anyone is hopelessly lost, because, in love, You sent Your Son to save the lost”. Amen.
