I once heard this quote from Spiderman that says “It’s easy to feel hopeful on a beautiful day like today, but there will be dark days ahead of us too, and there will be days where you feel all alone, and that’s when hope is needed the most, no matter how buried it gets, or how lost you feel, you must promise me, that you will hold on to hope. Keep it alive, we have to be greater than what we suffer. My wish for you, is to become hope, people need that, and even if we fail, what better way is there to live.”
In life I see this quote a lot; like how today is a good day and I am ready for whatever life throws at me. But there are also many bad days when I just can’t take all the pain anymore but I know God is far greater than my problems! Romans 15:13 shows us just that. “May God, the source of hope, fill you with joy and peace through your faith in Him. Then you will overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” So for now we need to hold onto God because He is our one and only true hope.
Hope is important when it comes to Christianity, as it goes hand in hand with faith. When we have hope we believe things will work out for the better. It means we hold on because we know better days are coming! One bad day is only one bad day. Its 24 hours, 1,440 minutes, and 86,400 seconds. However, sometimes when these bad days come we don’t think there’s much hope and all we want is the answer to the question, “Is there hope?” The answer is yes there is hope. Humans can’t live without hope. Hope is the driving force that keeps us going. It’s just as important as food and water. Albus Dumbledore once told me “There is always hope in the darkest of times if one remembers to turn on the light.” Hope might be tricky to find, sometimes it’s as quiet as a whisper but other times it rings as loud as church bells. No matter how quiet or loud hope is it’s always there just like how God is always there for us.
