Hope is not grasping against all odds to a miraculous fairy tale ending. Hope comes from the very heart of God. It gracefully reaches out and embraces you. And it is a gift. Hope is not focusing solely on the outcome you want. It nudges you to look at life in a new way. It sometimes becomes something different than what you had been longing for before. And it often is mixed with grief, pain and struggle. Hope is not just dreams. It is real. It is tangible. And you can have it right now.
