What is the source of your hope?
When I was younger, I put my hope in my youth…my firm skin, not saggy body, my unwrinkly face. Whatever creams or concoctions I applied, the ravages of gravity and time have taken their toll on my outward appearance. This hope failed me.
When I was younger, I put my hope in my intelligence and abilities. This hope failed me.
When I was younger, I put my hope in happily ever after. If I was loveable and had someone stick by me, I would be enough. This hope failed me.
When we put our hope in things that are not eternal, they will eventually fail us. But if we hope in God and his promises, that hope will not fail us.
Our hope will not be cut off.
