Hope is so easy when we are close to God. Things that seem hopeless are just suddenly possible and happening as we watch God transform this world. In fact, God seems to delight into entering our most hopeless situations, and filling them with peace, joy, love, and HOPE.
God came to be with us in Jesus, and then gave us a vision of a life where enemies love each other (and then stop being enemies), where the poor are cherished and uplifted (and then stop being poor), where the lonely are visited (and then stop being lonely). It is a vision of life that we catch when we begin to trust that with God all things truly are possible. There is hope.
