I keep my hope alive due to my faith in God.
I have learned that the greatest pain in the world is loss, but the greatest peace is acceptance of life as it is.
Many people blame God when a tragedy occurs.
I do not. I never blame God for anything.
Many tragedies are results of our own choices...but I have seen much good come from bad choices. Often people learn from their mistakes.
When I make a mistake or am heartbroken, I simply pray, "God please make something good come from this situation."
Herein is the hope...that things will turn out all right in the future.
99 percent of the time things always turn out the way they are supposed to...it may take months, years, but, in many cases, hope prevails.
Those things I cannot explain, such as a child dying from an automobile accident, or cancer, or a wonderful person murdered...I still do not question God. I will ask Him about it when I enter eternity.
With all the evil in the world, I still KNOW and HOPE and focus on the good that is in the world.
Love prevails over evil.
People come together in the midst of horrific events, such as floods, earthquakes, and disaster from events such as 9/11.
Hope means never giving up. My faith in God will always keep my hopes alive.
Thank you for this great question. Sparklea
