Must We Always Move In Hope?

Resting In Hope

Resting In Hope

 

Must we always be moving towards our Hopes for them to be fulfilled? I think not. There are times in our journey towards whatever it we may be Hoping for that we just need to sit and rest.

Make sure you pick a good resting point, imagine one like sitting under the above tree. A place that will give you calm, relaxing, even rejuvenating feelings, surrounded by beauty. A place of rest like this allows us to renew our strength for the journey that is often uphill and at times treacherous.

If you are hoping for something and you feel out of energy, take a moment to rest. Then, before you know it, Hope will lift you off your feet as you soar towards the fulfillment of it!

Is Hope Always Paradise?

Hope and Bird of Paradise

 

Have you asked yourself, “Does having Hope create a paradise?” If so, you know it doesn’t. So one may ask, then why should I have Hope? Let me tell you why, because to Hope means everything. One of the beautiful wonders of being human is the capacity to Hope.

In the midst of hoping for something I have often wondered how I could actually have hope when the situation looked completely impossible. That is the beauty of Hope. It lifts us up above the situation and allows us to have a new perspective. When we are faced with a difficult situation or anything that calls for Hope we have a choice to make. We can choose Hope or Hopelessness.

When we choose Hope it gives us strength to continue moving forward. And although it does not create a paradise, it is a thing of beauty that makes our heart sing. So please, choose Hope today! 🙂

Our World Today

Encouraging you to “Look up,” there you will find Hope! 🙂

Even when there was no reason for hope, Abraham kept hoping–believing that he
would become the father of many nations. For God had said to him, “That’s how
many descendants you will have!” Romans 4:18 New Living Translation

You may be facing one of your darkest days. My hope for you is that against all hope, you remain in hope. May you have a strong mind, stayed on the promises of The Most High. When we focus our eyes on him, we can hope when there is no reason for hope. For we know, he will always make a way. So, there is always cause for hope. Much love to you!

Out Of Anything

“But you can build a future out of anything. A scrap, a flicker. The desire to go forward, slowly, one foot at a time. You can build an airy city out of ruins.”               ― Lauren Oliver

Hope can spring forth from a scrap, a flicker, even a speck. It’s true you can build a future out of ANYTHING. No matter what you are going through at this moment or how bleak it may look, hope remains. It is ever-present and always waiting to be embraced. So, take one step and then the next, your future awaits! 🙂

Acceptance Increases Hope

“Understanding is the first step to acceptance, and only with acceptance can there be recovery.”
―    J.K. Rowling

“For after all, the best thing one can do when it is raining is let it rain.”
―    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“My happiness grows in direct proportion to my acceptance, and in inverse proportion to my expectations.”
―    Michael J. Fox

There is freedom that comes when we can accept ourselves, others and our circumstances. Although it is not always easy, there is no better way to live. Wikipedia tells us “Acceptance in human psychology is a person’s assent to the reality of a situation, recognizing a process or condition (often a negative or uncomfortable situation) without attempting to change it, protest, or exit.” With acceptance comes peace. Accepting a difficult situation does not mean we must give up hope. Instead, acceptance increases our hope. When we have peace in our heart through acceptance, our hope is able to rise above our circumstances. Most of us are faced with things we must accept on a daily basis. Rather than struggle with it, accept it.

May you be full of Hope and Acceptance! 🙂 🙂

No Vision No Hope

“Where there is no vision, there is no hope.”

– George Washington Carver

“Where there is no vision, the people perish” ~Proverbs 29:18 King James version

Do you have vision? Dictionary.com tells us to have vision means-the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be: an experience in which a personage, thing, or event appears vividly or credibly to the mind, although not actually present, often under the influence of a divine or other agency: something seen or otherwise perceived during such an experience: The vision revealed its message: a vivid, imaginative conception or anticipation.

We all have the capacity for having vision. We must set our minds to it and then act on it before we see it with the naked eye. Having vision creates an atmosphere for hope. It’s true, no vision, no hope. Without hope, we cease to want to live. Look inside and find your vision.

May you be full of hope and vision!
