Let Hope Rise

Sunday Night someone came up to me saying that had a word for me and then she said that I had to Let Hope Rise.

Sometimes we're so caught up in the chaos of life that we don't realise how much hopeless we've been living our lives, in the midst of all our sorrows and struggles we want God to come through but we often forget that He hasn't abandoned us and then we think that things will never be sorted out, we lose hope only because this hope has been deferred for such a long time, but that's not the way God wants us to live - He wants us to hold onto this hope as an anchor for our souls, that no matter what happens He will always come to rescue us. So often we find the statement of 'God is good' so hard to believe specially when we're facing so many serious pain and troubles in life, but when we say God is Good - this is his essence and it's not something based on our circumstances, because even in the midst of your trials he surely has been good to you, sometimes you just don't see it cause you're focusing on your limitations and not on the source of your faith, maybe things are not being the way you wish it could be happening right now but He will prove his faithfulness and his goodness towards you at the end and you'll look back and realise how faithful He was through all of this. Keep Holding On! Keep Trusting Him!

"But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more" - Psalm 71:14

"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer." - Romans 12:12

"For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently" - Romans 8:24-25
