Hope Against All Hopelessness

We all have hope for something special in our life. Hope for money, hope for marriage, hope for love and hope for life or even hope that is out of this world. You can feel alive and strong when hope arrived and you can feel defeated when hope is far away. there is a famous verse in bible described hope

" Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when it comes , it is a tree of life" Proverb 13:12.

I had a friend i know for sometime,married for more than a decade, full of life and prosperity, humble and God fearing child. Both his wife and himself served in the church feverntly in children ministry and in cell group. They were childless for sometime. God knows we pray for this couple many occassion yet they still hope for God to answer them. They try all sorts of method to conceive but still invain. A big break comes by for an adoption of an unborn child which the mother promised to give it to them. Tear of joy and brightness was upon them as they share the news with us. You could literately see them began to get ready for the baby stuff, checking their EQ and their physical body. When time comes to deliver the baby the baby mother refused to give away. How we see them shattered their hope....... my hope for them too shattered. Having go through this difficult phase of life they woe not to hope for a baby. What a waste.

Bible teaches us there is hope that comes from having faith in Jesus Christ when everything seems hopeless to you.

" Contrary to hope, in hope believe" Rom 4:8

Do not lose hope in everything you do with good intention even you see there is no hope to continue because Bible says God is the same now and forever. I am still hoping and praying for my friend to have a life with a child. This is going to be a supernatural child.

Lastly, i would like to share a passage in the Bible found in Psalms 37:4 " Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desire of your heart". So you still have hope no matter what circumstances you are in just trust in the Lord and pray.

God Bless.
