Hope

HopeThe word, Hope is both a noun and a verb!  This noun called hope is an anchor, a resting place, and a solid foundation.  So many times we think of hope as some unattainable, ethereal, abstract idea.  Hope is so much more.  It brings comfort and solace to the soul.  It speaks not only of what can be, but also what is.  Hope is a solid rock, a tangible thing on which a life can be built.

The verb, Hope is an action.  Hoping, dreaming, and acting… they are all connected.  Hoping is what keeps us looking forward and doing what seems to be impossible.

We need both.  We need that solid rock to stand on.  We also need the verb to keep us moving toward a better life, a bigger dream and a brighter tomorrow!

On Christ the Solid Rock I stand!  All other ground is sinking sand!

Keep Hope Going!
