The Return of Hope
I was beginning to lose hope. I thought for awhile, that I was losing faith, and I wondered to myself "how can that be?" I have always had faith. When we did a bible study class in church a few years ago, faith was one of my spiritual gifts. Then I realized that it wasn't my faith that I was losing, it was hope. I'd sit and think this situation we're walking through was never going to get any better. But suddenly my hope is back. I'm not sure why. But I'm glad. I felt like God was so far away. Like he was hiding Himself from me. Then I realized He was there all along. I just wasn't looking for Him. Maybe someone is praying for us. Probably.
