Thought for Today: “Hope Springs Eternal”
There is an eternal hope for everyone because Jesus rose from the dead and is an overcoming Savior.
Most of us don’t deal well with life’s disappointments. We tend to draw a curtain of protection around us trying to the keep the hurt out and bury our troubles and difficulties in the process.
But we all have dreams and plans as to what we want to become and what we want in life. The problem is that life seems to get in the way, hope gets lost in the process, and things just kind of goes downhill from there.
Solomon said, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.” (Proverbs 13:12 NKJV)
When hope is lost or deferred, our dreams are shattered, left dormant, imprisoned, manipulated, or paralyzed due to heartbreak.
But instead of turning to Jesus, our overcoming Savior, most turn to methods and medications which does greater damage by exasperating the problem bringing on greater depression.
But this doesn’t need to be the end of the story. God has great dreams and plans for our lives, dreams to give us a future and a hope.
Through the prophet Jeremiah, the Lord said, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
Therefore, though the resurrection of Jesus, our hope springs eternal.
