But what do you do when it hurts to hope?
Yesterday was our “gotcha day”, and the fact it falls on New Years Eve adds an extra element of celebration. (It was the 3rd anniversary of our adoption being finalized.)
Whenever I hear the word “hope” I’m haunted by memories of the pain I felt because it hurt to hope. Your doctors tell you there is little hope for bearing children. Your body is another year older and betrays your deepest desire. Your faith tells you anything is possible. It’s a complicated mix of emotions. You want to be hopeful, but you also want to be realistic.
I don’t know the answers for your situation, but I can tell you that in His love, hope is found. It may hurt – but let it hurt. He is working in your waiting.
Never surrender your hope. Ever.
