The Light of Hope
A few years ago I found this ...and I found HOPE ...all be it very gradually !
THE LIGHT OF HOPE
When you are down the bottom of the dark pit, look for the light of hope. It
is stronger and brighter than a million candles burning in your heart. It is
precious and unique and you will never lose it.
Sometimes strong winds blow and the flames flicker and grow dim but, when
the wind dies and all is calm, the glow is once again ignited to shine the
lights beauty and radiance upon us all. Never doubt that you have this flame
within you. Sometimes we forget to look for it and we flounder around in the
darkness wondering where we are.
All around you there is life and happiness - reach out and touch it for it
will be attracted to your light and be yours if you have the faith to accept
it. There is hope in that light of yours and you never lose it entirely
because hope is eternal and, like a circle, keeps the windows of our minds
alight so that the darkness will not engulf us entirely.
So you keep enduring through the rain and the cold climbing a huge mountain
in the dark - sometimes backwards and blindfolded. And then one day a small
beam of light filters through - you squint and wonder what it is.
It is the light of hope for it does exist. But first you must endure the
worst elements, the worst pain, terror, confusion and misery but, when you
reach the top of the mountain, look back down and realise, while standing in
the light, the journey you have made. Then you will know why the light of
And if you ever feel lost as though in a maze again - you're not. For during
the day all the wonders of mother nature will keep you company to buffer you
from pain and loneliness. And at night, the beauty of the constellation
continues to shine with the moon and the stars always there, even behind
dark clouds and rain, the planets always shine for you.
Yes life can be cruel and cold, but remember that there is love and
understanding in the light of hope to wrap around you and shelter and protect
you. Rejoice in the progress you have made each day for you have travelled a
long winding track in your journey to find some happiness.
May it always be yours in the light of hope.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord. “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
This verse has been a favourite of mine for a long time I knew I was in His grip but sometimes I felt I was slipping away ...
I came to realise we must be the one to be the change . I know we must also believe in ourselves and our unlimited potential even when things do not go as planned.
I am so thankful for HOPE ...it gives me strength to go on, makes my heart flutter with joy and gives me peace that I am not alone.
PS - All is well and I hope to be enjoying some calm blue sea for a few days with my family.
