Hope grows stronger through the eyes of gratitude of God’s faithful provision. Hope enlightens our souls, providing light in the darkness of this world. Hope inspires joy, settling bitter hearts. Hope is the spring board and foundation of Love. Hope empowers the action of Love. To have love you must first hope. FAITH gives hope, HOPE grows LOVE.
I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 NLT
