HOPING AGAINST HOPE ITSELF


Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune — without the words,
And never stops at all … (Emily Dickinson)


There comes a time in everybody’s life when all seems lost; without a solution. Every being experiences this including those born with a silver spoon. Most feel their sufferings, sorrow and pain are immeasurable, others most time feel like giving up the ghost. The number of sucides worldwide is increasing alarmingly. 

Mothers dump, abort or abandon their children when they find they are disabled. Fathers abandon their families when all seem hard. How long will this vicious cylce of misgiving continue. People lack faith when it comes to things in their lives the ought to apply it. 

We have faith that the driver/pilot will take us to our destination but we do not have faith God will take us to our destination. How ironic is it that the we have abandoned the One who has created and loved us. Jesus had asked us “Oh ye faithless generation! How long will I continue to be with you?”

Faith according to the Bible is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). I am not here to preach the Word but to encourage those of us struggling with life, struggling with financial issues, those caught in dilemmas, those who feel they don’t fit the part, those who feel they can’t be more than they are now and those who do not feel they are smart. 

When you fall stand up again and again. We have examples of people to learn from; the likes of Dr. Carson, the Wright Brothers, Bill Gates – the list is endless. 

All you got to do is to call Him and tell Him you believe. Trust me, He never fails.
