Hope. I love this word.
Only by reading it, I already feel better and more positive.
Even more beautiful is the fact, that only a tiny bit of hope can help us walking in faith.
Let’s take the parable of the mustard seed that you might have heard of. Whilst Jesus was on earth he told his deciples:
„Though it (the mustard seed) is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.”
Imagine now, your hopeful thought is only as small as a mustard seed.
That is already a breakthrough.
Look after that hopeful thought like a plant, water and cater for it.
It will grow and grow.
Eventually, your hope will be so big and strong, that you can call it faith.
Faith in turn opens all kind of doors for you.
You can apply it to every problem, negative feeling and horrible condition.
Maybe this is why Jesus said in Acts 16:31: „BELIEVE (in the lord Jesus), and you shall be saved“.
How big is your hope today?
