One of the greatest hurts that can ever be experienced is living without hope.
Hope is the spiritual force that keeps us moving forward. It fills each day with anticipation, excitement, and joy. With hope, there is life, but when hope is stolen and our dreams are crushed, we are left with emptiness. Hopelessness brings the pain of loneliness and despair. The feeling of failure becomes almost unbearable. The Bible says hope deferred makes the heart sick.
However, there is hope for your life. You can break free from the heaviness and fog that is trying to pull you into darkness. Like sunshine flooding a room when the curtains are pulled back, hope will flood your soul and you will see the possibilities that the light exposes when you discover the truth that has been hidden from you.
