Blog Elul: Hope

Hope. What Pandora left in her jar. What we swear to have when a tragedy hits.

Hope and Faith go hand in hand because as much as we do try, we cannot control the future. Bad things will happen, and instead of allowing them to break us, we need to hold strong. We need to convince ourselves, no matter how hard it will be, that we will win the next fight. Even when it feels like you don't want to get out of bed in the morning, we have to have hope. And if you cannot have hope for yourself because you are stuck so deep down in the valley of darkness, I will have hope for you. I will hope that someday soon, you will see the light again. You just can't stop fighting. I know the pain of a forever uphill battle. You may feel broken, but nobody dies with all of their pieces put together. People may seem to have their lives together, but I'll let you in on a little secret; A lot of the time they're just pretending. We just have to hope that each day we will find a piece of ourselves to add to our collections. And after all, broken crayons still color just as well.
