From Scotty Smith’s Everyday Prayers: 365 Days to a Gospel-Centered Faith:
It’s also so good to remember that I’m not called to “hope against hope” or to hope in hope, but to hope in you. For you’ve made promises you alone can keep, and you are not a man, that you should lie. You’re faithful and you’re loving, and that’s all I need to know.
Not hoping is not an option.
