Rejoice in our confident
Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.
I once heard that hope is faith holding out its hand in the dark. Reaching, grapsing in utter darkness, gloominess, yet believing.
No matter what circumstances you are in at the moment, no matter how hopeless you may feel, remember God has a plan. Look to Him. Tell Him about your pain. He will hold you and never let go. There is hope. Don't give up!
The Word says in Psalm 25:3 No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame..."
Hope is that thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops... at all. -Emily Dickinson
