Add in a dash of hope

Hope is a golden cord connecting you to heaven. - Jesus Calling

“Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.”
Romans 12:12

“This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us
through the curtain into God's inner sanctuary.”

Hebrews 6:19

What would happen if we lost hope? The “golden cord” connecting you to heaven becomes loose as you let go of your end. Your head lowers and the feet that once marched bravely ahead begin to barely move. Progress is at a standstill. The road you are on is rocky and uneven. If you were able to lift your sunken head to look around you would see a path that is full of detours, mountains, valleys and roadblocks.

If you have ever felt that way remember that cord of hope. It's still in your hands. Grip it. Pull it towards you. Stretch the cord tight. The road around you will remain rocky and uneven. There will still be detours, mountains, valleys and roadblocks, but you will have hope. Hope in the creator of the world. The one who loved you so much he allowed his only Son to die for you. Enough said.
