Realistically optimistic

And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. Rom. 5:5

Dashed hopes and broken dreams can lead to walls of bitterness, despair, and defeat. God offers more than pie-in-the-sky optimism. His Holy Spirit offers us a realistic hope that is rooted in God’s eternal love and purpose through the roughest patches of our lives.  There is always something good to look forward to in Christ.

My  hope is in you, Lord.
