Hope fills the afflicted soul with such inward joy and consolation that it can laugh while tears are in the eyes, sigh and sing all in a breath. William Gumal
Hope in the Lord for with the Lord, there is steadfast love and with Him is plentiful redemption. Psalm 130:7
Hope for the followers of Christ does not have a "maybe" but rather a knowing that in God's time our hope will be fulfilled. Joyful hope, assured hope, quiet hope is our way of being while we wait for God's will to be carried out for our good purpose.
Hope in God is not: hope I win the lottery, hope it doesn't rain tomorrow so I can go lay on the beach, etc. Rather hope is the quiet expectation of something that will happen that we want that is inline with God's perfect purpose.
