Hope is a very powerful thing! It’s the secret,quiet, inner part of ourselves that helps us to accomplish the things we feel are off limits. I was reading Life Without Limits this morning (see “What I’m reading” to the right for more info on the book) and Nick Vujicic was talking about a very dark point in his life where he contemplated suicide. He was hopeless and felt that without arms and legs he would never be able to have a meaningful life. Nick talked with his dad who assured him that he had hope Nicks life would get better for him one day. After that Nick had bad days but he never contemplated suicide again because he CLUNG to his parents hope that life would get better. He clung to hope, and that’s what helped him get through.
So there you have it. Cling to hope! Even when we can’t see solutions for ourselves, have hope that it will come.
