If you don’t have it, chances are you are probably feeling pretty empty.

What’s that?  Hope.

Here’s a quote from author Michael Dye: "When you project your current situation into the future, either hope or hopelessness is what looks back at you."

We can project our image into a mirror; that’s easy. We can view our faces in the still waters of a lake. We then see what we are like now—but tomorrow? Well, we’ll just have to wait and see. We don’t know how we will look in the future.

How does someone project their situation into the future?  Imagine the likely outcome of what you are experiencing now in, say, two years. Then five years. Then ten and fifteen.  What does it look like then?

Hope, or lack of it, will be the lens you see your future through. In Jesus, we have a hope for the future. We may be temporarily drawn away from this realization because of trials and difficulties, yet the truth remains.

When you look into the future, what looks back at you?

    I’ve been praying about something. That’s not unusual. Many people pray. For me, though, this is special. I have been praying about a matter for about 15 months now.
