Is Hope Always Paradise?

Hope and Bird of 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! 🙂

The Beauty Of Having Hope

There is no beauty in life more than the beauty of having hope.

I recently captured this photo in my back yard. The beautiful butterfly had landed on the ugly patch of concrete and shell mixture. Until that moment, I had thought that patch had no redeeming value and I couldn’t wait to remove it. When he landed there, it reminded me of times in our lives when we hold onto hope even in the ugliest situations. Then, I got a glimpse of how Hope must appear in the unseen realm, a beautiful reminder of better times ahead. Often we struggle to hang on during the difficult times we experience in our lives. When you encounter one of those times remember, there is beauty just ahead ready to land right in the middle of the ugly. Hope and Blessings to you!! 🙂

Never Give Up

“It’s probably my job to tell you life isn’t fair, but I figure you already know that. So instead, I’ll tell you that hope is precious, and you’re right not to give up.”
 ― C.J. Redwine

No matter what you may be facing right now, don’t give up. Never, ever give up!  Even though you may say, “yeah but, this isn’t fair,” have hope anyway. Truth is, no matter what you are going through right now, it will pass at some point and the sun will shine again. When we choose to hope through even the most difficult things in life, we are empowered. Hope is precious. Hang on to hope no matter what! 🙂

Hope In Action

“When you do nothing, you feel overwhelmed and powerless. But when you get involved, you feel the sense of hope and accomplishment that comes from knowing you are working to make things better.” ~Albert Einstein

Each new day provides us with an opportunity to be active in our hope. When we are doing something, large or small, to improve our situation or that of another, we increase our hope. Hope in action makes a difference. Move in it today! 🙂

Dig Deep

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!

Walk In The Light

“Each day means a new twenty-four hours. Each day means everything’s possible again. You live in the moment, you take it all one day at a time. You try to walk in the light”  ― Marie Lu

The light is always there, hope is alive and well. Each and every day we have a new opportunity to walk in hope. No matter how dark your day may seem, the light will always prevail.

May you be filled with hope and light! 🙂 🙂
