I love the hope that is provided in the Gospel. I love that through Christ, we have the hope of heaven, the hope of being reunited with Christopher, etc. But more than hope, I have confidence. I know that Christopher is in heaven, I know that I am going to heaven and we will be reunited.
I don’t hope that God forgives me, I know that He does. I don’t hope that God will sustain me through this painful process that I hate so intensely; I know that He will.
God has made a lot of promises. I don’t hope that He keeps his promises; I know that He will. Hope is not the best that God offers. He offers Himself and that gives me confidence.
And for that I am truly thankful.
