Hope Is Universal

I just returned from my annual working mission trip to Honduras. As I was lying in my bunk one night on the ranch, I thought about my journey in life. I reflected on the people we were helping in Honduras. I realized how important hope is in our lives. With hope we can do some incredible things. Because hope gives us the energy and the courage to never give up. Please enjoy the pictures from my recent mission trip and my first poem I have ever written. It is called hope

Hope

Have you ever felt like you’ve lost all hope?
Like you’re treading water and barely staying afloat.

You’re constantly thinking about your past, you feel helpless,like you’re falling so fast.

Now you’re feeling alone and there’s silence like there’s no one home.

Hope is fading until the day that you start praying.
Once you begin to believe you start to feel relieved.

Because now you know you can cope because in faith, you’ve found hope.

Even though the journey won’t be easy, you are no longer afraid.

Because there’s strength in praying and believing in your faith.
Affirmation that love is now in place.

With a new found courage, you can move forward, yet should you have pause to reexamine your life’s scope, whatever the view, it holds no fear for you because faith has rewarded you with Hope.
