Hope We Seek

The whole concept of “hope” and what that means and what it is can be a lengthy discussion; but I think the Buddhist monk Thich Hanh has a good take on it “Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.” Paul tells us in Romans 8:24, 25, “For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have?  But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.” Our Hope is in Christ and that is a truth. Hope comes when we find our salvation in Jesus, when we call on him, when we come to him, and pray in his name. When these things happen we will have the hope that we seek. God Loves Ya 😉
