Hope is surely the highest motivating factor!

Whether hope of graduation, hope of the loan going through (or being paid off), or hope of a purposeful life, the ignition to our daily movement is securely based upon that bedrock word.

This word gives me reason to awaken day after day for six-plus decades with a drive and an energy that does not slow.  Jesus resurrectionally thrust all followers into a pattern of even the impossible can become possible.  Show me a person who is dragging just to get by and I'll show you one who possesses no hope.

A good question is how do we get there?  How do we land upon assurance of such?  Hebrews 11:1 specifies that the faith factor is the key that unlocks the wonder in our trek.  Faith is the assurance of things hoped for the conviction of things not seen.

Faith is not possessing the want for things.  Anybody can want improvement, blessings, and successes. Faith is an assurance, convictedly so, that what isn't can be.  Review Romans 4:17.

And then read on through verse :25.  The key that shifts us from wishful thinking to reality is faith that if the Son of God can come alive from the tomb after being dead, we can believe (are permitted to believe) that the impossible can happen for us!

The earth is pregnant with hope for those who believe God works.  Nothing says it's over.  No message of death or non-existence shuts down hope for we believe in the mighty and glorious hand of God.  He can make something of nothing and give life to the dead.

Hope is every direction a believer turns.  Join in on seeing the impossible become possible.

Everywhere we turn is pregnant with hope!
