Overflowing hope. Imagine. When you have it, it is amazing!!! If you don’t it can seem so elusive.
Joy and Peace will (if you are not experiencing this…you need to check your walk with Christ 🙂 ) fill us … as we trust (have faith) in Him. “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1 (NLT)
Wow. Faith requires hope. Hope in Christ. Hope in God. Hope for things that we cannot see … and it is the confidence and assurance about those things we hope for.
Hope is a feeling maybe like rising up in a hot air balloon, rising up over all the things of this world, all the things going on below. And looking out over them towards the horizon…the horizon of things promised or hoped for. The dreams that we hide in our hearts…or the goals and plans we strive towards. When we are in this place, of hope, the worries of this world fade and drift by, making space in our view (or perspective) for the things we desire to come towards us. Maybe it’s a time with our grandchildren, maybe it’s a business accomplishment .. usually it is many things.
Let us HOPE More!
We can rise above the things in this world…think on higher things (Colossians 3:2) and move forward!
