Hope

Even if we don’t see it right away, there is always hope. Imagine all of the people in the world, right this minute, that are looking for a tiny glimmer of hope to get them through the next few minutes, the next hour, or the coming days.

When we lose hope, I have found it’s all too often because we have reached the point of helplessness. When we just don’t know what to do anymore. I have been there many times in my life. I have felt broken, my life has looked like a mess all too often but I have learned a valuable lesson through those times. My life and the situations in my life are never completely hopeless, unless I allow it to be.

Being sick often brings me to the point of helplessness and sometimes I even start to lose hope. However, I have learned that I am in control of how far I go with it because I am in control of my emotions. I may not be able to help my illness, or fix it my situation at times, but I can control my mind. I can control my emotions. I can stop the moment I feel all hope is gone and look again. It’s in these times I will find hope that I missed in the moment.

I have learned that hope doesn’t have to appear huge either.

We all want that big bright shiny light of hope and the answer to fix it all but what if the hope that we are searching for is being overlooked because we aren’t looking hard enough. What if it’s just that tiny speck of hope that gets us through to the next day? Lastly, what if that tiny speck of hope is meant to make us stronger?

A tiny glimmer is enough for me because even if I am feeling helpless, I know where my help comes from and that my friend is Jesus. With him by my side, there is always hope.

  1. It is very strange that outlooks can change from great to a deadlock in a year. Waiting for clearing up is similar to pain. You know that you have gone through it several times and it will be ok, but while feeling it you can not imagine its ending.
