Hope

Hope.
Such a diluted word nowadays.
I hope to get an iPhone.
I hope to buy a house.
I hope to get the tickets to the football game.

Hope.
Everybody hopes.
But, there is a bigger meaning to hope.
So big, to those who possessed it cannot explain.
And to those who do not have it, dies.

Hope is the light at the end of the tunnel.
Hope is the thing that keeps you alive.
Hope is knowing that better days are to come.
Hope is being sure that you are never deserted.
Hope can never be revealed its importance until the day comes when it is really needed.

Like the hope for a cure to a dying patient,
Or the hope for love to an abandoned child.
The hope for a better future to someone living on the streets,
Or the hope for life to someone who wants to die.

There is hope for every one of us.
Seek it as it is already there.
Find it and own it.
When you have hope, you can give hope.
As you get the courage in the hope you found, you can be the hope to someone else.
It is when you have hope, you know how much you needed it.

This post was inspired by this video and I was reminded of the 2nd video after writing this.
Both are my favourite. It shows a glimpse of hope at work.

O Lord, you alone are my hope. Psalm 71:5
Having hope will give you courage. Job 11:18
