Hope is a belief in a positive outcome related to events and circumstances in one's life. Hope is the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best.

In a religious context, it is not considered as a physical emotion but as a spiritual grace. Hope is distinct from positive thinking, which refers to a therapeutic or systematic process used in psychology for reversing pessimism. The term false hope refers to a hope based entirely around a fantasy or an extremely unlikely outcome.

Have we met? I stumbled upon your blog this morning when I was looking for something else. I cannot remember if I have visited you before or not, but your picture looks familiar; maybe I have seen it on Mondays at A Holy Experience? I love your blog name. Hope for Each Day by Billy Graham is a book I use for my daily quiet time. Have a great day.
