There’s one quality that you must have if you’re going to grow. Without it your emotions will turn dark and heavy. Your spiritual life will become dry and ineffective. Even your body will begin to show signs of wear.
This quality is a fundamental building bock for faith. It’s necessary for an intentional life. Quite surprisingly, it’s even a powerful component for physical health. What is this quality?
It’s sometimes a feeling, sometimes a belief. And it’s literally necessary for life. It’s hope.
This is not just someone counseling you to smile and buck up. This is about whether you will grow, and in some cases, whether you will live or die. Recent medical studies have discovered that fear and despair are not just mental states. They profoundly effect our bodies as well. You’re designed this way.
