Here's hoping


I really 'hope' that someday I can live in this Greenwich Village neighborhood. Manhattan, NYC.

You know, there are alot of things that I hope for in this life that I might not receive. I always toss the word 'hope' around like it means the most trivial thing. "I really hope my mom makes chicken enchiladas on Sunday for dinner, I really hope that I get invited to that party, I really hope that the US wins this soccer game against Ghana!"

...Then I get disapointed.

It goes deeper as well. "I really hope I get married, maybe even before all my younger siblings do? Maybe before I turn 30?"

...Then I get disapointed.

BUT, Hope is a gift from the Almighty and Gracious Father meant for His chosen. His chidren. It is a hope that will never end. He meant it for our souls, our satisfaction, our perserverance, our delight. For when we hope in the ONE TRUE GOOD GOD, we are delighted, we laugh at the future, and long for His nearness. When we hope in the things that He has given us....

...then we are never disapointed.

The hope journey in words, nice job Merea! While we are on this temporary earth I think we will always first naturally hope for temporary things, like a husband. But the beauty of God's promise that He will give us wisdom when we ask for it is that we are constantly learning that true Hope is for His kingdom, and His return! As hard as it is for me to imagine the joy of having a husband someday, I want and yearn for the joy in the hope of His return. My hope struggle used to only be for myself, and it has been a joy to see God change my hope, and a joy to see where your Hope is. So good Merea!

Hey! Just passing through and I saw this entry. The funny thing is, I was praying about the fears that I have, the things I want to acomplish ect. and I was reminded the very same thing-- my hope isn't in the things of this world, but my hope -- something that I can stand by and believe in, knowing it will BE-- is in Christ, it is in the eternal life God has promised for us. .. anyways, thanks for sharing. have an amazing day. God bless!
