Hope is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul

And sings the tune without the words

And never stops at all.

― Emily Dickinson

*     *     *


The word has such full meaning.

Its definition is,

“A feeling of expectation and desire

for a certain thing to happen, a feeling of trust.”


*     *     *


*     *      *

We have hope for many things; hoping for something to happen, or hoping for the best.

I was thinking about it this morning, how our hope in Christ enables us to have hope

when things are not visible. When one has a feeling of expectation, there is excitement

in that hope; I remind myself, that to hope in the Lord also brings excitement and joy.

Our mental state, as well as our physical state, is influenced by the things we think on,

and I can’t think of a more positive thing to dwell on, than the hope we have in Christ!

Hope is living to see another day!

*     *     *

We see these days that suicides are on the rise.

Some people are so devoid of hope out of their situation or lot in life,

that they see no other recourse;

despondancy wraps around people like a cocoon,

and yet the simplest of answers is there for them!

It doesn’t require a pill, a self-help book, a new location, or a makeover;

Jesus gave the free gift of salvation,

and desires to give all the peace and joy that a heart could desire!

Hope is something to reach for when I am sad.

*     *     *


*      *     *

Hope is something to reach for when I am bad.

*     *     *


*     *     *

Hope is something to reach for when I am mad.

*     *     *


*     *      *

Hope makes me glad.

 “For Thou art my Hope, O Lord God:

   Thou art my trust from my youth.”

  Psalm 71:5

*     *     *

 ” And now, Lord, what wait I for? my Hope is in Thee!”

Psalm 39:7

*     *     *

 “But I wil Hope continually,

and will yet praise Thee more and more!”

Psalm 71:14

*     *     *

I have no reason to be shaky in my faith,

I have a solid hope in Him,

and He is with me every step of the way!

He makes me feel safe and secure,

knowing I’m well taken care of by my Heavenly Father!

There are numerous scriptures on hope, in the Bible;

it’s an exhaustive topic!

He is so good to me…

 “But Christ as a son over His own house;

whose house are we,

if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope

firm unto the end!”

Hebrews 3:6

*     *     *

 “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye

may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.”

Romans 15:13

*     *     *

Hope will fortify our hearts when we feel like we’re down for the count.

What should we do then?




in God our Savior!

the Hope of glory:”
