To everything there is a season, a time for everything purpose under heaven (Eccles.3:12) The Bible says in Proverbs 13:12, "Hope deferred makes the heart sick." The world is filled with heart-sick people whose hope have been jilted one too many times. While hope may indeed spring eternal in the human breast, it springs weaker after each deadline for fulfillment is postponed. The Bible says we are saved by hope (Romans 8:24). The implication is that our lives have meaning and a reason for tomorrow based on the hopes inside of us. When hopes dim or disappear altogether, our vision for the future often dims as well.
