I remain, if you will, infatuated with the word “hope”. Is that what I am trying to say? I am tired and big words run and hide from me tonight.
So simply put. I love hope and everything about it.
I see hope in people everyday and if I do not see it I try to give it to them.
Every person is a walking miracle if nothing else but for the fact that they are walking.
In my new profession as a community iaison aka college recruiter I see students and potential students twenty one years of age and older as vessels of hope spilling out all around them.
They believe, they pursue, they achieve.
In one of the closing scenes from The Shawshank Redemption Red is reading a letter from Andy who is encouraging Red to join him faraway in Mexico. The letter closed with these words, “Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies. I will be hoping that this letter finds you, and finds you well. Your friend. Andy. ”
Hope is a good thing.
The Bible screams hope.
In Jeremiah 29:11 it says, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Only God can truly give you hope and certainly only God can give you a future.
It is interesting how one’s hope and one’s future fit so well together.
Define your hope and from where it comes and He will define your future.
