Hope is the feeling we have that the feeling we have is not permanent. (Mignon McLaughlin)
As noted yesterday, “No feeling is final.” We may feel bad when we know that some really great feeling like joy, love, or happiness is not going to last. On the other hand, it’s a great comfort to know that feelings of sadness, disappointment, and failure will pass too. What we must remember is that our lives should be strongly attached to something more lasting than feelings.
Blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. (Jeremiah 17:7)
