“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint” – Isaiah 40:31
A truly inspirational text, don’t you think? It always fills us with a shared feeling of strength and dedication when we read it. It gives us hope. Hope is in essence a feeling of trust, an uncertain but optimistic expectation that things will happen in a certain desired way. And one could say that it’s hope that can always keep us going – no matter how difficult times can be.
