The one thing that separates those who survive and those who perish in life’s struggles is hope. Even in sickness, the hope and will to live play a critical role in healing. Hope allows us to believe in a better life, a better future. In times of darkness, hope enables us to keep waking up in the morning, a day at a time, and we keep going. And when hope is present, faith is birthed, which allows us to start seeing things before they happen. With faith, we see with the heart, then the senses follow. They say faith cannot be manufactured, but it comes when we hear and know the words and truth that make them come alive.
