A Christian’s definition of hope is far superior to that of the world. Instead of wishing or hoping for something to happen, a believer knows that their hope is solid, concrete evidence because it is grounded in the Word of God and we know that God cannot lie (Patheos, 2014).
Hope is synonymous of faith, looking for a better future, and positive mind thought that all would be well. People hope to find a new and a better job when laid off, hope often succeeds negative experience as one looks for a more positive consequences in the outcome of their choices, post a negative or regrettable event.
Some optimists believe that the word hope, is used for people who are not sure of the outcome of their under takings. They would rather use the word like; it is already done to affirm the positive state of mind of an anticipated outcome.
Hope comes after darkness, it is the step towards a more fulfilling future, and with hope people can make the impossible possible. Faith and hope go together, when you have faith in someone, you will always be hopeful that the individual will stand by you, offer help when needed, or just be there for you.
