You can't give up hope because things look hopeless.

Matthew Mitcham, Australian Olympic and Commonwealth Games gold and silver medallist, has this quote on his Facebook page “You can't give up hope because it's hopeless .You have to hope even more, and block your ears and go "blah blah blah blah blah blah blah..." ”

To be honest, I think most of us like to throw ourselves a pity party once in a while.  However, if we wallow in self pity for too long, like sticky mud, hopelessness it will attach itself to us, seep into our very pores and can be really difficult to remove.   

It’s easy to give up when things look grim, but God wants us to trust him and in turn, when we trust him we find safety and rest.

And you shall be secure and feel confident because there is hope; yes, you shall search about you, and you shall take your rest in safety.  Job 11:18
