Hope Will Find You

Something I’ve noticed about hope, it always comes back to you.

It’s like how my son sends his yo-yo rapidly towards the ground and yet, when it reaches the bottom, it curls its way back up the string to be caught by ready hands.  Or just when you think the night can’t get any darker, the first of the morning rays peek over the horizon. Or when you’ve told your dear friend you’re fine and no worries, yet she later sends you a check-in text anyway.

What's something you can do when you feel hopeless?

Get up. Take a shower. Eat breakfast. Hold your head up high and carry on about your day. And you wait for it. Look for it. Expect it.

Hope will show up. It might be the tiniest of slivers or the entire sun itself, but it'll be there. It'll show itself. 

It always does.

"...but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." (Isaiah 40:31, NIV)
