Let it all go except for hope. Yep, that one you will want to hold on to.

Hold onto hope. There is so much more. More for which to be grateful.

Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.
Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.
But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”
“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”
“Come,” he said.
Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”
Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”
And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”
Perhaps the reason why those with the biggest hearts are so often treated poorly is because of the failure of others to bear the truth about themselves ?
In other words, those “others” attack what they hate and what they hate actually resides within. Whether love or hate, both give life to where the energy of thought and emotion flow. Hate is inherently evil not only because of the hurt it causes to others but even more due to the harm to self. It constricts and circles inward till there’s nothing but self-destruction.
Love opens, heals, binds and lifts up. Against all odds it endures.
The higher road is the tougher climb but it leads to so much more. Press on.
