Searching for Hope

In C.S. Lewis' book, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, Lucy discovers a land where "it's always winter, but never Christmas."

This is a land where there is never a hope for a season to pass. There is never a hope for things to someday get better. To live without this hope is to be trapped in generational sin and our own past mistakes. When this is the mindset there is no need to think of the future or to imagine that anything can change. 

This is a perversion of the promise that God brings. He shows us that there is no hope without Him. The rest of our lives may seem futile, but if we believe in a God who is always working for our good we can see a glimmer of light when the rest of our world is trapped in darkness.
