There’s no happiness in hopelessness but a heart full of hope sings with happiness. When we neglect to cultivate hope in our heart, we give up on happiness.
Hope is the soap that can wash away discouragement, the rope that can lift you out of despair. Hopelessness is a form of blindness–a lack of insight, a closure of the eyes of the heart.
Every injection of hope is a vaccine that helps fight despair. How to live with hope is a skill that is seldom taught. If we want to learn it, we have to search for it and learn it on our own.
Kindness offers people a glimpse of hope. Freely pass it around.
Your words and actions can bring people hope or make their hope dissipate. Be a hope-giver, not a hope-stealer.
If we set aside the hopelessness of anger, bitterness, blame, and profanity, we’ll feel better. Forgiving restores hope!
Hopelessness happens when we refuse to see beyond our self-focus. When people are overcome by hopelessness, they often turn to anger, hostility, and even violence.
Profanity is the language of hopelessness. The less hope people have, the more they cuss.
Tormenting thoughts are trespassers in your mind. You have the right to demand that they leave. Use it.
Here’s hope: When you feel like there’s no way out, or confused by lies, or hopeless, Jesus is “the way, the truth, and the life.”
