Higher Hope
(Chapter from my book, Ride On!)

“Some see a hopeless end while others see an endless hope.” ~ Author unknown

In our journey of life, we travel on many kinds of roads.

Some of those roads were easy flat stretches with lots of sunshine on which you traveled with much joy, love, and hope. It’s so easy to be strong in your faith during this part of your journey when life offers so much hope.

Other roads posed some challenges of small hills and curves with some storms during which you’ve had your moments of doubt and fear but you stayed strong in your faith and love. You know there is always hope.

Sometimes riding on these kinds of roads prepares us for the more difficult ones later on.

These are those roads that were the most challenging to keep riding on. The hills seemed endless to climb, flat stretches seemed to go on forever, dead-ends, dangerous potholes, and constant storms, but you know you must keep riding on through it all. Even though you’ve reached your limit of frustration, stress, and fear, you know that your perseverance and endurance are being tested. Out of this test, will become your testimony of your faith and love. Because of this, you hold on to that endless hope!

Where is your hope in your journey of life?  Do you see a hopeless end?  Do you see an endless hope?

“To hope is the way we are saved. But if we saw what we hoped for, there would no longer be hope. How can you hope for what is already seen? So, we hope for what we do not see and we will receive through patient hope.” ~Romans 8:24-25

Keep holding on to your hope no matter how defeating your situations seems. “…keep a grip on hope. God’s love is created new every morning. I’m sticking with God. He’s all I’ve got left. God proves to be good to the man who passionately waits, to the woman who diligently seeks. It’s a good thing to quietly hope, quietly hope for help from God.” ~Lamentations 3:19-26

This kind of hope is what keeps you riding on through those challenging roads. It gives you light to lead you, strengthens your faith to trust God, and deepens the love you hold in your heart.

So… “Hold fast to your hope without wavering, because He who promised is faithful.” ~Hebrews 10:23

“Some see a hopeless end while others see an endless hope.”

God is an endless hope that is the highest hope of all.

Ride On strong in your Hope!
