Hope

Hope
is the confidence
that there is more
than what we feel
Hope
is the trust
in a God
that is real
Hope
is the place
deep inside
where we find
Hope
as a gift
for our hearts
and our minds
Hope
is not wishing
for change from
without or inside
Hope
is the touch
of the Lord
where we hide
Hope
will sustain
when it rests
on the truth
Hope
is the Spirit
living in
and through you
