“Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.” – Jeremiah 17:7
“Hope is not knowledge, but rather the abiding trust that the Lord will fulfill His promise to us. It is confidence that if we live according to God’s laws and the words of His prophets now, we will receive desired blessings in the future. It is believing and expecting that our prayers will be answered. It is manifest in confidence, optimism, enthusiasm, and patient perseverance.” – Dieter F. Uchtdorf
