It's easy for us to lose hope when our plans in life do not come to fruition. When this happens, we must yield our will to God's perfect plan for us, because His love for us is greater than our dreams and disappointments.
Remember, our strength comes from the "Joy of the Lord," our faith relieves doubts and persuades us to trust God in everything!
And, hope, well hope holds us together and tends to drive us right into the loving arms of our Lord, especially when everything around us is going wrong!
God will always make a way, particularly when there seems to be no way, just remember that this is not a journey of understanding! No, this is an odyssey of surrender, relinquishing every facet of our heart and soul, all of our desires... this is truly a pilgrimage of discovering our trust in God!
We can have confidence and assurance in His perfect timing and will, when things don't seem to work out, don't try to move ahead of God because He is teaching you to totally trust Him! This earthly life will give us reason after reason to give up, but we have the promises of God that say, "Fear not for I am with thee... (see Isaiah 41:10)
We need not fear God, for he strengthens us when we are weak, He gives us the stamina and courage to keep going! No need to worry or fret, God has pulled us out of the darkness into His glorious light!
Every day God gifts our lives with a new beginning, a new blessing and a "new hope!" So get busy, get along with one another, don't be stuck-up, make friends with nobodies; don't try to be the great somebody!
Laugh with your friends who are happy; share tears when they are down and out, and always "Spread the Light of God's Hope!!
