Hopelessness is the cruelest emotion. I felt hopeless once. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. Hopelessness is like being in a dark hole. You don’t know how to get out and you don’t care.
If you have ever experienced hopelessness, and you’re still around to tell about it, you understand the inextricable need of all human beings to have HOPE.
Pastor Louie Giglio says, “Simply by our proximity to Jesus, we can bring hope and life to people and places trapped in discouragement and despair.”
What greater motivation could there be for devoting time each day to God alone? My prayer is that because I seek Him, others will see Him and take hold of that hope that anchors my soul.
“We are never without hope, because we are never without Him.” Sarah Rodriguez Rhodes
Sarah writes about the day, shortly after her husband’s death, when doctors told her there was no hope for the life of her two week old baby girl. But Sarah says, “We are never without hope, because we are never without Him.” You can read her testimony of God’s faithfulness here. Sarah’s Story
“…Christ Jesus (is) our HOPE… 1 Timothy 1:1
I have shared these thoughts on hope in response to an invitation from Vickies’s Book Nook and Meditation Corner.
I would like to invite 3 of my favorite writers, Daryl Madden and Christy and Vivian to share their thoughts and 2 of their favorite quotes on GRACE.
The rules are simple. No pressure – if you choose to participate, invite 3 bloggers to write 2 quotes each, on 1 word given to them by you.
This is My Journey Unscripted.
