What is “hope”?
Hope is a spiritual gift straight from our Higher Power
What is hope? Hope says, “everything will be alright” when things may not look so good. Without a little fear there is no need for hope. Hope is present when courage is in action. Hope accommodates peace of mind. We rest in the hope that God has our back even though we may have some doubts. When we practice hope regularly “HOPE IS A PRELUDE TO FAITH”.
Undeniably we addicts have our trust issues. Fear is as natural as faith. When faith takes over our fear, hope, & doubts disappear with a dose of new faith and trust in our Higher Power that the unknown really will be OK. Let’s face it…the future can be a scary thing but hope takes that fear of the unknown and eventually turns it into faith & trust mixed with a little desire.
Hope is a spiritual gift grouped with Love and Faith as the greatest gifts.
We must remember to allow hope to live in us because the opposite of Hope is hopelessness which is accompanied by depression and a lack of Love for life. We Nurture the Hope that we are given so it will transform into a faith that will move mountains.
