Hope is one of the most powerful of forces, for it is mankind reaching to God and God replying.
There is no false hope, only false expectations. The response from God comes in ways we can't always fathom and in messages we may not at first understand. But ultimately that response brings a profound impact to each of our lives.
The key to hope is faith and gratitude, along with patience and humility. Be thankful and appreciate what you have while you have it, not demanding of what you want and when you want it. In truth, none of us is in control and our lives are in hands far greater than our own.
