Thank you Steven C. Hawthorne for your words:
hope. "God has called us to live our lives as a bold act of hope. To hope is not merely to wish for small improvements of personal circumstances. Hope expects all things, large or little, to be overwhelmed and filled with the immense glory of Christ. Thus, true hope pursues global glory and total triumph over evil. Lives of hope can face great evil with relentless courage, since there is no telling how soon God will break through with ultimate victory."
I think it's time we go to the Doctor and get some new glasses. Our outlook on life is far too easily tainted and blurred. So let's try on some new perspectives. How about hope? True hope that is.
