Job 18:11 says “Having hope will give you courage.” In this next season in my life, and a lot of your lives if you are high school seniors going into college soon, we will need a lot of courage.
Courage to defend our Faith, courage to do life how we know we should, not how society says we should, and courage to step out in the adventure that is college. When Job says that having hope will give you courage, I think this means a few things. I think that first, this means that having hope in Jesus and his promise to guide your life and bless you in ways you cannot imagine. And two, I think this means that you need to have hope in the tough times and in the times when it is hard to find hope. Hope will give you courage to move forward.
So, have hope, even in the hard times, because that will give you courage. The world needs more courageous women like you!
