Hope for the Future

Hope for the Future

Christians often read the Bible and then look around at the world and think the end times are near. I don’t want to say whether that’s true or not, but I do want to say that either way it’s important to have hope for the future. Here’s why.

The answer: This is very similar to why we should have trust. We should have hope for the future because no matter what happens we must have faith that we’re heading in the right direction. Of course, if you know your life isn’t going the right way because it’s your own fault, then still, indeed, by having hope for the future you can muster the courage needed from inside to mark your wrongs and start heading in the right way. Without hope for the future, it’s very hard to set and accomplish long-term goals.

Even if we only have 15 years left on Earth, for example, we should continue to live everyday as if we expect the Earth to rotate around the sun for millions of more years.

This is my message for you today. Enjoy your time here while we can and have hope!

Just Trust

Just Trust

I’ve been getting a lot of questions like “how will I get through this?” and “why is this happening to me?” and my answer is always the same. Before I get to that answer, let me talk about what trust really means to a Catholic.

Trust isn’t a financial term or a something you put faith in. Trust is when you don’t need faith because you just know. When I put trust into something, knowing all will work out for the betterment of the best thing possible, I simply know all will be fine because I know God knows what’s best even if I can’t understand it.

Now, to answer those questions above, it’s always the same. Just trust in God. Everything that might seem bad often becomes the best thing that ever happened to you in hindsight. So, just remember, when you’re uncertain what’s going to happen next, uncertain whether everything will be okay, just put trust in God, stay calm and I promise you all will be fine.

My answer will never change.
