Hope for Today

With much recent news of the world coming to an end, some of us have lost a little hope. Hope in a world that's seems to grow crazier each day. With all this at hand, we must still continue to find hope for today.

> To expect and desire. See Synonyms at expect.
> A wish or desire accompanied by confident expectation of its fulfillment.
> Something that is hoped for or desired: Success is our hope.
> One that is a source of or reason for hope: the team's only hope for victory.
> often Hope Christianity The theological virtue defined as the desire and search for a future good, difficult but not impossible to attain with God's help.
> Archaic Trust; confidence.

Without hope we have nothing to look forward to. Things just seem to be, and whatever happens, happens. When we determine we will be hopeful, even though things seem less than hopeful, we choose to have confidence. No matter our situations or circumstances, and there may be many, we can still choose to believe in hope. I find that hope in God, putting my trust in him helps me to stay inspired even through these troubling times.

John 16:33 NIV
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

Although we are facing some of the worse troubles of our time, we can still keep hope, and allow the peace of God to rule in our hearts.
