Nothing is ever hopeless. As long as you still believe and have faith, there is always hope. It is when you quit hoping that you truly lose. Never give up hope.
Hope comes in many forms. When we are struggling, it can be found in the ones who overcame their struggles. The ones who endured the hardships that life threw at them and came out the other side.
We are never promised a life free of heartaches and hardships. We are in fact, never promised an easy life. Nothing is owing to us either. We get what we sow. When life gets tough, sow seeds of hope to get you through.
I believe that faith and hope go hand in hand. The belief in life everlasting in an eternal peace with God is hopeful. It tells us that when our current situation is bad, that it won’t last forever.
When you have hope, nothing is too overwhelming. Yes it may be sad, painful or hard but it won’t always be that way. It might be for a while but we have the power to change our circumstances. When we can’t change our circumstances, we can change our attitude towards them and choose to be joyful. That in itself is hopeful.
When you lose sight of the future possibilities and do not believe in yourself, or trust God to help, that is when things can become very bleak. You must look beyond your circumstances to find hope.
If you can’t see it for yourself, look to others for examples. There are many. A man with no limbs who is a motivational speaker, a man missing a leg who is a marathon runner. The list goes on, a woman, scarred beyond recognition who emits the very essence of beauty, etc? These are but a few. There are thousands of examples, one just has to look.
Nothing is ever so bad that it can’t be fixed, or things can’t be made right. It might not be easy but it is possible. Some things may take longer to complete but they are doable. This means there is hope.
Hope for a better tomorrow, a better job, a better life. Hope to be free from pain, free from addiction, free from racism. There is hope for it all but nothing will work, or be right, without positive action and effort.
My faith is strong. I believe through Him that all things are possible. For that reason alone, I am never without hope. Just because I believe though, doesn’t mean I can sit back doing nothing and just wait. I must be accountable for my own happiness as well. I must take action to change whatever it is that is bringing me down.
You have the power within you to change your circumstances, whatever they may be. Because of this there is always hope. If you are lost, ask for guidance and direction. If you need help, you must ask for it. People may see you struggling, but most know that it is your journey and will not interfere unless you ask for their assistance.
I know life can be very hard at times, even overwhelming. Find comfort in knowing that your situation doesn’t have to be permanent. Whatever you do, never give up hope.
