anchor2Sometimes I wrestle with the meaning of words, even with Webster’s help. This time, it wasn’t until I scanned through the modern day definitions and made it to the archaic that hope started to make sense.

archaic:trust†

And then, there it was as a transitive verb…

to expect with confidence†:†trust

These issues I’m having with hope? How I seem to lose it so quickly? Maybe it has something to do with trust — and with prepositions.

I struggle with hope when I focus on what I’m hoping†for†instead of Who my hope is†in.

Read that again. Slowly.

And remind me of that when I don’t get what I want, when I stop trusting. Remind me that hope is in fact an anchor, and it is steady even when I am not.
