Through Him you are believers in God, Who raised Him up … so that your faith and hope might be in God.  - 1 Pet 1:21

Reflection.  Place your hope in God and everything else will fall in place.  All your happiness will be major and all your unhappiness will be minor.  Do not try to understand it, just believe.

Prayer.  Lord, where there is life there is hope.  I am alive, and I look to You as my supreme hope.  Thank You for filling me with faith and joy.
