And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. – Romans 5:5
For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease. – Job 14:7
Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. – Proverbs 13:12
For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion. – Eccl 9:4
HOPE is a rope…
Maybe a bridge that helps you cope
Hope is the thread you hold onto
Whilst expecting answers on which way to go
Hope, like a heartbeat, says “don’t give in!
It might not happen today, but you will win!”
It is a decision to stand in the midst of a trial
And say “come what may, I will not retire.”
One thing you are told not to loose
Even when it gets down to having to choose.
Hope feels like an assurance
That a promise given has insurance.
Let’s hold on to what we have been told
When you have hope, you are worth more than gold.
