You Are My Greatest Hope

“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.” Desmond Tutu

I know it’s cliché, I know you’ve heard it over and over again. Don’t give up on love.

So hear me out for a second!

Someone you love and trusted has ripped your heart wide open and you are left with the brokenness, the betrayal, the hurt and the feeling that you will never love or trust anyone again.

For some, the betrayal is unthinkable, and you can’t even bring yourself to talk about it. For some, you are still carrying the resentment and anger in your heart. For some, you shut the world out and fall into a dark place. For some the pain is too great and you made a promise to never let your guard down.

No matter how wrong things have gone for you, I want to encourage you today not to give up on love. Whether it’s a friend, a spouse, a brother, a sister or a lover, you have to get up, forgive them and move on.

Stop going back and reliving the pain. Forgive the person that hurt you, then forgive yourself.

Don’t give up on love. Never give up on yourself. No matter how many times love has let you down.

I believe one day when you least expect it, love will find you, and someone will tell you that you are their greatest hope and their sweetest blessing.

It’s not impossible, you’re not too old, or too broken, stop telling yourself that you don’t deserve love, that no one will ever love you. Start changing your pattern of thinking, let it all go and open your heart to the future and all the possibilities that awaits you.

After all you are my greatest hope.

There are good things waiting for you! I hope you know that, I pray you believe that.

Poem

At the end of the day

When the hush settled into its itself

And your beating heart

Pulls me in from the wreckage

Of the day

I came to you silently

Dragging all my burdens

Behind me

And you wrapped me in your arms

And whispered

I’ll always be here at the end

Of the day

To welcome you home

You’re my greatest hope

My sweetest blessing

My forever love

With love and gratitude
