But if we hope for what we do not see,
we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
- Romans 8:25 -
What we love, we pay attention to it.
But what we hope, we motivate ourselves in that direction. We see to it that it happens the way we want.
When hope is beyond our control, we will still pray for it, wish for it, or worry about it.
Hope is a longing, a desire, or an expectation of fulfillment.
It can be passive or intensely active.
It can be for evil or for good.
Let us be sure we have the right hope.
