Our Unbreakable Spiritual Lifeline

By: Joanne Viola


It’s the feeling things will turn out for the best, or what one is desiring will be obtained or achieved.

“We who have run for our very lives to God have every reason to grab the promised hope with both hands and never let go. It’s an unbreakable spiritual lifeline …”
(Hebrews 6:18, MSG)
As we face hard or seemingly impossible situations, our hope often wanes. We can feel like we have lost our hope. There seems to be no signs of change, of improvement, or a resolution.

It can be hard to be patient and wait for things to get better. Sometimes we get tired of trusting and being patient. We lose our desire to even hope.

This is when we need someone to hold on for us.

Once we experience hope, the writer of Hebrews encourages us to grab hold of the promised hope, hold on with all our might, and never let hope slip from our hands.

Hope becomes our unbreakable spiritual lifeline, the lifeline we hold onto for ourselves and to offer others.

With hope the clouds split, the sun shines, and the day dawns, as the promise comes.

We receive hope from others and in turn, we offer that same hope to others when they need someone to hold hope out. It is a most precious gift to be the recipient of someone hoping on your behalf.

We receive the lifeline of hope,
so we can offer the lifeline of hope.
