Paul tells us that out of all the things which remain from this life to the next, these three are at the top: love, faith, and hope. Hope never disappoints; having hope is one of the signs that God is involved in your story (Romans 5:5). Surprisingly enough, we learn from Paul that hope is grown not by having all of our dreams realized but by suffering. This means hope is grown when we need it the most - in times of perseverance. Keep hoping and your seed of hope will become a rooted tree. Additional Scriptures: Isaiah 40:31, Hebrews 11:11
