Processing hope that does not put us to shame or, in other translations, that does not disappoint. Because there is obviously a type of hope that lets us down, maybe even makes us feel like fools that we could have had such expectations. This is a different kind and even has a guarantee … Spirit as collateral, if you will. .

It’s interesting for me to ponder since my WIP has a lot to do with hope and expectation, whether fulfilled or fruitless. And the past 18 months have been filled with a lot of hopes that disappointed, some that put me to shame. Sometimes I feel silly that I continue to hope for certain things.

But this. This is different. And I can trust that even those fruitless hopes were producing character in me. I don’t want heartache to be wasted.

If God is the vine and I am a branch, maybe my heartaches and trials can be the rich compost that also helps me grow? Just a thought.
