When Christ spoke to the woman at the well, He said something I never noticed before; “If you only knew the gift God has for you …” Hope is directly tied to what our Father wants to give us. Hope is the knowledge that our Father, God, has something better for us. We know it even if we don’t see it. We believe that God has a gift for us simply because of who we are to Him – His beloved children.
Each time I try not to hope, hope comes back. It rears its beautiful head in my Spirit and I start to hope again….
