Light the Candle of Hope
“We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.” Psalm 33:20
Hope. Regardless of our age, it’s a word that is used frequently throughout our daily lives. Children wish for their favorite foods, being picked first on a team, and staying up later than their bedtimes. As adults, most of us have hoped for superficial things like a favorite sports team’s win, a short line at the grocery store, and material things. The way we typically use the word hope is just wishful thinking.
