My word for the new year is Hope. Hope is defined as a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.. However, much like love, I have learned in my life that hope is more than a feeling. Instead, it is a decision. It is faith. It is believing in a greater plan and a greater purpose. Jesus came to the world to offer hope. Without it, the world is a dark place indeed.
"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew [their] strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; [and] they shall walk, and not faint."
-- Isaiah 40:31

"Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost."
-- Romans 5:13

" Blessed [is] the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is."
-- Jeremiah 17:7

"Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness."
-- Desmond Tutu

"Pain is real. But so is hope"
-- Unknown

"Hope is a waking dream."
-- Aristotle
