Hope is not just having a positive attitude, being optimistic or dreaming about what could be. Hope is a way of approaching life rooted in God’s love, Jesus’ death and resurrection, and the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit. Hope allows you to deal with the most difficult and painful moments of your life, because you know that you are not in it alone. Hope enables you to deal with anything that occurs, because you see beyond what’s happening in the moment. Hope propels you to take action that makes a positive difference in your life and the lives of others, because you are a Jesus-follower who lives with compassion and conviction. Put it all together and the conclusion is obvious. Hope is a life-changer. Especially in a COVID-19 world.
