  1. My hope is Jesus..He will make ALL things new…wars will end, hatred stop, death banished, sickness no-more, tears wiped away..Oh yes, JESUS alone is my hope!!

  2. My hope is in Christ alone! He is my past, present and future. My Saviour, friend, love and God. When this world distracts me, He is my anchor and hope.

  3. My hope is that my husband will choose his family and our marriage over his own selfish desires. That is my biggest hope of all….

  4. My hope is built on nothing less that Jesus love and righteousness. But also I have a hope that every child can grow with a whole unshattered heart.

  5. My hope is in Jesus. I have looked for love, to be loved and there is no one that can give it to me like I want. I want to taste and feel more love. My hope is to love and show love to others to let people know that love can be found in Jesus.

  6. I am hoping for a job offer (and then a child because we cant afford babies until I am employed) I am trying to HOPE IN THE LORD for these things and to sustain me.

  7. My hope is that Jesus will fulfill the desires I believe He’s put in my heart. Specifically writing and moving to the country 🙂

  8. My hope is in The Lord ! And to maybe help someone along the way in life to feel the love of Jesus Christ .

  9. My hope is that my two teenage boys will make good choices as they both go off to college and that the faith that my husband and I express & live will become their faith as well.

  10. Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
    2 Corinthians 1:21-22
    My hope is that my sons will return to their faith and stand firm in Christ. That they will remember their anointing, their seal and the guarantee of the Spirit in their lives.

  11. Claire,
    Thank you for a beautiful post and for sharing your story! My hope is first and foremost in Christ. My second hope is and will always be to see God’s continued Prescence and hand upon the life of my precious son. I have been given the grace to watch him grow from infant to now adolescent. Through each developmental stage, I have seen his love for Our Lord continue to grow and shine through. Thank you Claire for asking those two simple questions – “What do I hope for?” And “What makes my hope run?”

  12. My hope is that my life brings God glory. Even in the deep valleys, the ugly hurts, the tough days of raising 5 kids (2 of whom have special needs), when I want to choose my own kingdom, my own selfishness, when I don’t trust in God like I should, when I am tired and worn, ….. When the days are sunny and things go smoothly, when there is much laughter and a light heart, when we have extra money to put aside at the end of the month, when my husband makes me feel beautiful and I blush embarrassed, when I sing off key as I worship my Lord, when I talk with a dear friend…. my life’s goal is to point others to God and bring Him glory in the mundane things of life.

  13. My hope is several things: 1) to rid the world of cancer completely!
    2) End all wars and strife!!! 3) For a new/different job for myself and hubby!!

    Jesus is my hope and He alone can make all things happen!!

    Blessings 🙂

  14. Good questions! My one big hope, the anchor for my soul, is looking forward to eternity with God. Jesus is the hope of the world!
