Held by Hope

 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.  
Jeremiah 29:11

 Have hope.   If all you can do is hope for hope then do all you can do.   Hope will follow.  Don't fear hope either.   I can be afraid that if I allow hope in the door it will be followed by calamity.   When I deny hope, I deny my Lord.   That's not the kind of Christian I want to be.   I know the source of my hope.   It met me at the cross.  

It Might Be Hope
Sara Groves

you do your work the best that you can
you put one foot in front of the other
life comes in waves and makes it's demands
you hold on as well as you’re able
you've been here for a long long time
hope has a way of turning its face to you
just when you least expect it
you walk in a room
you look out a window
and something there leaves you breathless
you say to yourself
it's been a while since i felt this
but it feels like it might be hope
it's hard to recall what blew out the flame
it's been dark here since you can remember
you talk it all through to find it a name
as days go on by without number
you've been here for a long long time
