Hmmmmm….I don’t know about this one Jon. Does hope start in the dark? Showing up and doing the right thing doesn’t seem the answer. (I could show up to each cancer treatment and take all the right meds and eat all the right foods – this doesn’t guarantee a dawn.) I agree, we wait and watch – but we, in our weakness often give up. It is not by our strength/works that anything of lasting value is done – it is by His strength and power. It is not what we hope – but Who we hope in.
Good points. I do think though that the ultimate answers to many of our HOPEs don’t manifest themselves until heaven. And there is a certain amount of persistence and “not losing heart” that goes with it. I hope you read my post from today (4/3/2017).
