Hope enables us to see the light in the darkest of places and the most challenging of circumstances. It allows us to comprehend that which appears unfathomable, and feel that which is intangible. However, hope is not always easy to obtain or to hold on to because there are times when we think that life is hopeless and God appears to be far away. At such times life seems empty and we get caught up in our own sense of worthlessness. Rather than becoming overwhelmed by our feelings of hopelessness, we need to turn to God who is the source of hope. In doing so, we move beyond ourselves to God who has promised never to leave us or forsake us.
