Hope

Question… The bible says…

“Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles.”
Isaiah 40:31

“…Then you will know that I am the LORD;
those who hope in me will not be disappointed.” Isaiah 49:23b

and plenty more such verses…

My question is, WHAT THE HECK DOES THAT MEAN?!

What does it look like? To “hope” in the Lord… Hope in Him to do what?

What we want?

That He uses us?

To show us what to want?

And if we do feel disappointment in our lives, does that mean the things we were wanting were not “okay”? Or were we not properly “hoping in the Lord”?

I ask these questions, not having any answers… i only know that my relationship with Christ is extremely important to me. In trying to deepen that relationship i sometimes run across questions i can’t answer.

So, I’m choosing to process out loud and am again, inviting you along for the ride.

So what does it mean to hope? What/who are you hoping in?
