"Hope is a golden cord connecting you to heaven. This cord helps you hold your head up high, even when multiple trials are buffeting you. I never leave your side, and I never let go of your hand. but without the cord of hope, your head may slump and your feet may shuffle as you journey uphill with Me. Hope lifts your perspective from your weary feet to the glorious view you can see from the high road. You are reminded that the road we're traveling together is ultimately a highway to heaven. when you consider this radiant destination, the roughness or smoothness of the road ahead becomes much less significant. I am training you to hold in your heart a dual focus: My continual Presence and the hope of heaven."

"The quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty,

Our perfect example of courage and kindness is our Savior, Jesus Christ. Even when everyone turned away from Him, He loved them unconditionally. He suffered all so we wouldn't have to.

If you ever wonder what's right, just think - "What Would Jesus Do?"
