“I will never give up hope or stop praising you.”
David made a bold statement there. I repeat it in my head. But it’s not always true in my heart.
Keeping full of hope doesn’t mean we think everything will turn out great. That people won’t die or that troubles won’t come. They will. We all hurt sometimes. We can hold hope and still ache at the same time.
But “never giving up hope” might mean never doubting God’s goodness. And sometimes, when things look bleak, we’re tempted to wonder.
David’s words are my goal. I want to always believe that God’s plan is best. That I can trust him 100%. That no matter what happens, all will be well.
Most of the time? I believe.
All the time? I’m not there yet.
