The sting of loss births great pain. More painful is it when there is nothing left to fill in for what is gone. But the balm of happy expectations is always a soothing relief, bringing much comfort till the pain is forgotten. It says, “Restoration will come. Take heart.” In all things, be positive.
You may have suffered much, but that isn’t enough reason to stop expecting the best. A happy expectation in the midst of a sad occurrence is comforting. It is like opening up the window of a stuffy room. It lets the bad air be replaced with fresh one, and illuminates the heart.
It gives the heart something to look out for and something to reach out to. Don’t let yourself be stuck in any area of your life because of some loss you suffered. Be positive. Open up your heart and let it be filled with hope. Restoration will surely come.
