Love and Hope

"To love anyone is to hope in him always...
We must dare to love in a world 
that does not know how to love." 
French priest quoted by 
Madeline L'Engle, Walking on Water

Christian hope decrees 
the impossible is always possible.
The story of redemption and restoration
is the story of Father's love for His children
made possible through His Son.
"What is impossible for people is possible with God."
What great love God has for us.
Today I am reminded that: 
"Love never gives up, 
never loses faith, 
and is always hopeful."
We must never lose hope,
for ourselves or for others.
Our love depends on it.
Lord, increase my capacity to love others
by being "always hopeful."
Because all things are possible in Christ.
That truth should slap all our doubt
in the face.
