If we have hope we are often seen as optimistic. But, one does not equal the other. In a lot of ways they do align, but hope is more honest and we can feel it down to our core.

Hope is a feeling and a state of mind that is fueled by God. Without Him, life doesn’t seem worth it. But, therein lies the biggest reason for hope. God is ours for the taking and He can never be taken from us.

So, no matter how bad or hard life might get, at the end of the day we still have God and we still have hope. We will struggle and might not know the next step, but holding onto God’s hope will always be the best rescue available to us.

Simply put…it’s a win, win. Because I have God in my life, I have hope (and life is worth living).
