Trust over Hope

Trust over Hope


Trust transcends hope, as the sky above transcends the earth below.

A thread of hope is an anchor to the ground, a narrow path you’ve set for destiny to lead you.

The thread snaps and your eyes look up to see nothing more than the open sky. Hope is gone. All you can do now is trust the One who has no bounds.

That is Trust: When you stop suggesting to your Maker how He could rescue you. When you are prepared to be surprised by wonders and open to miracles.

The tragedy of Toulouse will put our faith in Hashem to the test.

When bad things happen to innocent people we are forced to sit down and think and rethink seriously.

As i write this, the murderer's head has met up with a sniper's bullet.

Our prayers and hearts are with the victims and their families.

trust over hope
this reminded me of the often told story of the person who complains about not winning the lottery but never buys a ticket. the meaning of trust, as i read here, was realizing that every day HaShem renews for me, i have already won. no ticket needed.

Living with god
They're not mutually exclusive. Hope without trust means not living with god.
