Hope For When Your Hope Feels Lost

A few months ago, I wrote an article titled Hope Changes Everything. Shortly after I posted it on my own blog, it also ran on a website called Thoughts About God. There it received more exposure which led to comments and questions from readers in other countries.

The common question was…

How do I keep hoping when it feels like all hope is lost? {Tweet this}

That's not an easy question to answer. Everyone has to deal with something in life, whether it's in the past, going on right now, or something that will happen in the future. Everyone’s “something” is hard and the longer it goes on, it can feel like hope is fleeting. {Tweet this}

Without knowing individual situations, I tried to respond based on what I've learned in my own experiences…because sometimes just knowing someone else is also struggling makes a difference.

Maybe you've been asking the same question—how do I keep hoping when it feels like all hope is gone?

  1. Oh, thank you for words about persevering in the "hope that does not disappoint!"

  2. Beautiful and encouraging post, Laura!!

  3. There are times it's been hard to hold on to my hope, Laura. Those are the times I need to remember to see things in perspective of a God who loves me dearly, regardless of my circumstances.
    Blessings to you.

  4. I love that we don't have to drum up hope, that if we ask God, He will give this grace-gift to us, weary and broken as we are.

    So good to meet you via Holley's this morning, Laura. Bless you ...
