‘Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.’

- Our lives should be lived in dependence on God.
- Submission is always hard for those who think they know better.
- If we will humble ourselves and take our stand, we will overcome.
- Do not entertain the lies of the enemy, resist him, and he will run from you.

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all.
- Emily Dickinson


Hope is an essential ingredient of life.  If we have hope we can face anything that life can throw at us.  If we have hope we can take on the challenges and overcome.  Hope is what gets you up in the morning. 
Definition: a desire with anticipation or to desire with expectation of obtainment or to expect with confidence.
Life with hope can be a life of expectation, anticipation and 'looking forward' to a good future, regardless of the circumstances right now.


On the other hand life without hope is completely different.  Life without hope is hopeless.
Definition of hopeless: having no expectation of good or success.
When we lose hope we lose the strength for life.  We no longer have the strength to get up in the morning.  We do not have the strength to face tomorrow.  Everything becomes a challenge and even small tasks call for a great degree of effort.  We have experienced this first hand.  I have seen the ravages of despair, hopelessness and depression.  I have seen hope turn to hopelessness, hopelessness turn to despair, despair turn to depression and depression turn to destruction.  The medical fraternity predicts that depression will be a dominant disease in the world.  Not HIV, cancer or heart-disease, but depression.  The world is staring down an epidemic of depression and I believe it starts when hope is lost.
