When Hope Refuses to Stay Down

We all have days when things go right. Everything we touch is golden.

But we also have days when things go wrong. It’s in those days that it’s easy to lose hope.

If you’re reading this on April 2, Good Friday, you’ll remember on the very first Good Friday two thousand years ago it seemed all hope was erased forever.

With Jesus captured, beaten, and left for dead on a cross, the plan seemed to have gone terribly awry.

But hope doesn’t like to stay down. 

As Karen says in our featured post this week, “Hope was always coming. And God knew.”

We can know, too. Maybe the exact situation we’re hoping to change won’t be changed. Or the job we’re hoping for won’t be the one we’re offered. Or the problem we want solved won’t suddenly become solvable.

But somehow, someway, God can and will return us again to victory.

In the story of Jesus, it was three days later that Hope rose from the dead. He walked out of the tomb, and never went back in.

May we keep Hope alive in our hearts too. Even on those dead days, resurrection is only a corner away.
