No matter what, I’ll hope in you to help me. Nothing will stop me from praising you to magnify your glory! Psalm 71:14 The Passion Translation
Hope perspective takes practice. It is a life-long habit that can be created through a continual process of recognizing that life goes on, joy returns and dark times enrich your life through adding depth and understanding.

The word that gets me in this scripture is ALWAYS. It is the same as the use of the word HOPE in the Bible. Every single time it is the “confident expectation of a God outcome no matter what it looks like right now.” You have received the download of the goodness of the Lord during the night hours. This wisdom puts a frame around every even of the day.
As you begin to look for solutions you reject the mental attack of the possibility of doom and gloom. Instead, it’s all about advance and light. You are no longer afraid of the dark that surrounds as you prepare to break through the barriers and lies that are holding you back.
Living with this level of hope takes consistency and determination to continue to say – “on the positive side.” You truly only have one consistent choice every day – your perspective.
