That’s Life — Helen Steiner Rice

A little laughter, a little song,
A little teardrop
When things go wrong,
A little calm
And a little strife,
A little loving–
And that is life.

Nothing More, Nothing Less, Nothing Else

Lord, open my eyes that I may see truth and my ears to hear truth.
Open my heart to receive it by faith.
Renew my mind to keep it in hope.
Surrender my will that I may live it with love.
Remind me that I am responsible when I hear it.
Help me desire to obey what You say through it.
Transform my life that I may know it.
Burden my heart that I may share it.
Speak now Lord.
Give me a passion to know Your will.
Nothing more, nothing less, nothing else.

Hope Is Remembering The Promises Of God

Because we have fixed our hope on the living God. 1 Timothy 4:10b (NASB)
Most of us want to be optimistic. Optimism is that positive outlook that is based on how things are going. Hope is different from optimism. Hope is not based on what is going on at the moment or the direction in which things are headed.
Hope is based on a promise that something is going to change the course of events. It is not based on the latest experience we have had, or on how optimistic or pessimistic we feel at the moment.
Hope keeps on going when optimism fails. Hope is remembering the promises of God, remembering how He has broken into human events in the past, and the promise that He will do it again.
