Hope is the state, which promotes the belief in a good outcome related to events and circumstances in one's life. Hope is the "feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best" or the act of "looking forward to something with desire and reasonable confidence" or "feeling that something desired may happen".
Other definitions are "to cherish a desire with anticipation"; "to desire with expectation of obtainment"; or "to expect with confidence". In the English language the word can be used as either a noun or a verb, although hope as a concept has a similar meaning in either use.
“O Lord, You alone are my hope.” Psalm 71:5
Lord, as believers in Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ we come to you today to Pray4America on our knees with all humility acknowledging that we in ourselves have no strength, wisdom or empowerment to carry your banner of righteousness without the indwelling of your Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:4)
I used to not understand how people could not heed the warnings when inclement weather was headed their way…now that I’ve lived in DC for a year, it actually makes a lot more sense.
Since moving to DC, I have lived “through” a Derecho, Hurricane Sandy and the “Snowquester.” The Derecho didn’t even knock out my power, Hurricane Sandy was nothing more than a thunderstorm similar to an Arizona monsoon storm and the “Snowquester” snowed just enough to turn to slush then melt within 24 hours.
