The Fuel.

I read somewhere a few months back that you can live without 
water and food
for so long, 
but it is impossible to live without 

Hope is what fuels me.
Hope is the reason I get out of bed every morning.
Hope is the thing I lean on when I hurt from the loss
of Grandma.
Hope is what I see when everything seems lost.
Hope is what pushes me to see beyond the 
suffering and despair.
Hope is the morning sun and knowing
it will rise every day,...
whether there are clouds or not.
Hope inspires me to look above this world.
Hope grows from the flowers that
I trust and know bloom every spring.
Hope is my strength.
Hope is knowing God put me on this Earth
for a reason.
Hope is my fuel.

God has given me an incredible amount of hope in my life,
especially over the past year.
I have had many ups and downs, twists and turns,
but all leading me to a life filled with 
Without hope, I would have been lost.

But the main point I am getting at is this..
my hope would  not exist without Him.
If God didn't dwell in me,
there would be no hope.

Without God's love and knowing how He sacrificed 
His one and only son for me..and for you,
I would have no hope,
no hope for a beautiful life,
no hope for love,
no hope for a life
beyond this world,
no hope for an eternity with Him.

That is where my hope ultimately lies.
In Him.

And just as surely as the promised rainbow after the storm,
I have a hope that endures.

1 Corinthians 15:19
If only in this life we have hope in Christ,
we are of all people most to be pitied.
