Our experience in life is the result of many tiny decisions. Do you ever ignore annoying issues hoping they will miraculously fix themselves? How does that work out for you? What about with bigger issues?
Have you ever gone looking for something but along the way discovered you weren't even in the correct region to be looking for that thing? How is that similar to searching for hope? Do you sometimes find yourself looking for hope in all the wrong places?
How do you balance things in life? Do you delicately stabilize things for a moment only to have something come out of nowhere and disrupt everything? Have you considered that maybe fulfilling our purpose is better than finding balance?
Have you ever wondered how a good God can possibly exist when you or those you care about continue to experience pain? Do you find it impossible to think about comfort when the only thoughts filling your mind are about what you've lost?
