LIVE IN HOPE (POEM)

Intro:
This poem is an affirmation of my belief that life is worth living and that no matter what good things we’ve experienced, it’s likely that God still has new and better things in store for us. The laudation of hope seen here is not meant to undermine the place of faith in the life of the believer nor is it a call to disregard the words of Solomon as recorded in the Bible. Every verse of scripture is best understood in its proper context if we will be enriched by it. Read, comment and share widely on your social media platforms. You are richly blessed in Jesus’ name.

LIVE IN HOPE

What is life without anticipation of the newness hope will bring? #quote #poem Click To Tweet

It’s wonderful to have something to look forward to
To work and strive to see it become part of our lives
It’s exciting to conceive new ideas and projects
To put our mental and physical resources into them
For what is life without hope?
What is life without anticipation of the newness it will bring?

There was once a king called Solomon
Solomon was blessed by God, oh so extraordinarily
He invested his time in seeking knowledge
He composed songs and proverbs
He built cities and gardens
He accumulated wives and horses
But then he got bored
He felt he’d seen it all
His tastes became sated and his verses cynical
What had happened to the great king?
He had lost his sense of wonder and expectation

Perhaps, if he had taken it slow
If he had paused to appreciate
And had taken everything in measured doses
He would not have been jaded enough to declare
“Everything is meaningless
There’s nothing new under the sun”*

There’s always something new
Life is infinite in its possibilities
The spirit of creation still pervades the earth
The wonders to come could exceed the wonders that have been

So latch on to hope
Look out for the new, inquire and enjoy
As long as you have life in you
Never say there’s nothing to look forward to
As God is vast and layered in mystery
So is this wide world we live in
Lose yourself in Him and all your days will be filled with hope

    This poem portraye the importance of an individual putting their hope in God no matter their situations and difficulties in life. Hope gives birth to results if someone doesn’t give up.

    • Edith Ohaja

      You’re right! That is why the Bible says “hope maketh not ashamed”, meaning that our hope in God does not disappoint us. May you see God do amazing things in your life in Jesus’ name.

  • Beautiful! With respect to faith, it is my opinion that hope keeps faith alive. The two are not rivals nor are they mutually exclusive. Rather they both need and compliment each other. A well versed and written poem.

    • Edith Ohaja

      Thanks a whole lot, Ziri! So glad you came by. Glory to God for the poem. I hope it encourages some people. You are blessed and blessed in Jesus’ name.

  • Obasi Chidinma

    This poem is an awesome one. Although life gives you all that it takes to live, one still needs to pause and use it wisely. Solomon, the wise king, accumulated all he needed but at a point, he found it all to be tasteless and vanity. Life can be tasteless at a point but one needs to encourage oneself and live on.

  • Obidigbo Ifunanya Nino

    Wow……interesting poem. As a Christian, we should try and bring God into our everyday life. We should also appreciate his works and no matter how little you think he gave you, try and be appreciative. Also, we should be happy with what we have and don’t envy others.

  • Kat

    ‘As long as you have life in you,never say there’s nothing to look forward to’…. Some people contend that love is the greatest gift of all. I believe it is hope. Really what is life without hope? what then will all our dreams and aspirations amount to without the rare gem that is hope?. To lose hope is to lose joy, to lose hope is to forsake happiness, to lose hope is to forfeit life. Oh Aunty Edith! you have not the slightest inclination, not the faintest clue what your poems of hope and faith do to me. With every poem of hope that you write, i fall in love with you all over again. You may probably think i’m over-emotional but even as i write this, the tears of gladness just won’t stop flowing. Ma’am, my greatest fear is for hope to elude me. It’s a fate i could never wish on anyone. I could read poems of hope all day if the pressing matters of this world let me. I’m thankful, ma’am. In no small measure am i thankful.

    • Edith Ohaja

      Praise the Lord! The three virtues – faith, hope and love are all important and work interconnectedly. The Bible tells us that faith works through love and that our hope does not disappoint us because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts. So you see, as the Bible says again, love is the binding tie for all three. You are splendidly blessed in Jesus’ name.

  • Izuogu Ozioma Precious

    I love this poem, it shows that we need to work hard for our future, because there is one adage that said that, heaven help those who help themselves. King solomon is a very hardworking man, through his hardworking God bless him, so it shows that we need to word hard for God to bless us more and more.

  • orji chidubem

    wow! I love this poem. Its all about hope which is the virtuous desire for good. As a christian, we are also meant to have faith in God because Faith is the ultimate needed in a Christian’s life. we should also be hardworking, for Faith goes along with work.

    • Edith Ohaja

      Actually, we are meant to have faith, hope and love but love is the greatest because the other don’t work well without it. Have a fruitful week, Chidubem, in Jesus’ name.

  • ogbodo somtochukwu

    hope/faith is a total world of its own ….its like being satisfied in hunger by telling urself that food will come even when there is no food around …its like being in a situation where all odds are pointing @ ur death and yet you are laughing and saying you will live……..its unbelievable but yet we are meant to believe…..indeed now i believe dt there are things yet to come, because if king solomon in all his riches did not use a phone, even if its nokia 3310….then there is a lot yet unseen…..

  • RebeccaLynn

    “As long as you have life in you, never say there’s nothing to look forward to.” Amen! I love these words, Edith. The world needs hope. And Hope, as we are blessed to know, is Christ Jesus. Praise God!

  • OZURUMBA IHEANYICHUKWU GODWIN

    thank you ma for rekindling my faith in God. fabulous post.

  • NWABUIKE ONYINYECHI GOODNESS

    Living your life without hope is meaningless; hope pushes you to do more and also to give it your all.
    Once you have hope and faith in God,you will always be encouraged to give life your all in all that you do.
    Like the saying goes, once there is life there is always hope.

  • Odo Collins Nnaemeka

    This poem is really encouraging because hope is one of the special attributes one needs to adopt, reason being that with hope one can conquer or rather achieve many things.

  • nnakwe uchenna

    Hope is the foundation of every true christian. Why do i say this? it’s because we all hope in christ and in the kingdom of God that has been promised in the bible book of Daniel.

  • NZEH RESTORE

    Hope is what everyone has. We all have hope in something or someone but regardless of whatever we put our faith or hope in, we must remember to hope in the Lord.

    • Edith Ohaja

      Is it really true that everyone has hope, and faith? That would really be nice. But I do agree that it is best to put our hopes in God.

  • Agwu Tochukwu Frank

    This is an inspirational poem.
    Our responsibility is to have faith and hope in God, God`s own responsibility is to bless us infinitely .
    Therefore, do not be like Solomon, who felt tired and bored to appreciate God for his riches and wealth.
    God bless you ma.

  • Ugwuaneke Grace U

    this poem i must say is awesome, hope keeps us going even in trials and difficulties of life,hope sustains us,it is only a dead man that dosen’t have hope for as far as there is life,there is hope.

  • Juliet Onyinye

    Exactly! Hope introduces totally new dimensions to life. A life void of hope and expectstions is really boring and bleak.

  • Juliet Onyinye

    A life void of hope can be said to be boring and lacking spice. because hope opens more new dimensions to life.

  • John Chimuanya

    Nice work ma.
    New inventions only tend to excite for a while, but hope really provides for a pleasurable and meaningful life.

  • Morgan Joy

    This poem emphasises on the saying that where there is life, there is hope. I agree with the poem because it passes a secret message to me. Thank you ma.

  • Eze Levi Ifeanyi

    What a motivational poem. We should know that the future has good plans for us. So, we should live in hope because wonders to come are better than wonders that had passed.

  • Obasi Kosiso

    Hope and faith are forces that push us toward achieving great, especially when things of this world try to weigh us down. #living in anticipation of new things life brings# are now my watchwords.
    Thank u Ma
    u are really an epitome of God’s instrument, used for invigorating the enervated hopes of individuals who come across this blog.

  • ukwueze oluchi benedette

    Awesome! This is indeed a motivational poem which enables us to know the need of having faith and hope in everything because once there is no hope, there will be no life.

  • This is beautiful! Truly, the world has a lot of mysteries yet to be discovered if only we take it a step at a time.

  • Stella Onyeji

    life without hope is meaningless…. i can’t even imagine it

  • AKOGWU ANN CHIDIMMA

    Pride is an ingredient of destruction and failure. We should not be carried away by pride when the almighty God lifts us up.

  • AMADI MIRIAM NNENNA

    Wow…..interesting poem. God is the giver of hope where there is no hope, no matter what one is passing through in life.

  • fon cyril

    Life without hope is meaningless, but when you have hope and the fear of God in you, life will be so meaningful

  • Amaobi Precious

    Wow! This is beautiful!
    Life always and will always have something new that we are yet to know about. There are still wonders that God has in store for the ones who believe.
    But then, I leant that in as much as some may be blessed abundantly like King Solomon, we ought to take life easy and slowly and enjoying every good thing that the Lord has brought to us.
    There shouldn’t be any anxiousness to get them all, else we might say life is meaningless like King Solomon.
    Kudos!

  • EZEORAH CYNTHIA SOMTOCHUKWU.

    So, whenever wonderful things happen in our life, we should always appreciate and hope in Him to do something better. And He will.

  • Agbowo chisom

    Exactly! We need hope in our lives so we don’t say life is meaningless like Solomon.

  • Nnedinso rita

    Hope is the light of every individual, it gives us the courage to go on; especially when we hope in something as strong and trustworthy as God!

    H.O.P.E they say stands for Hold On, Pain Ends and that is exactly what this poem reminds me of life will always be challenging but hope will always be that tiny voice that whispers hold on. I like the poem as a whole but I fell in love with its last stanza because, the writer was able to encourage her readers and also acknowledge God, shining the light on the fact that our hope should be in God only.

  • Ezeugwu Echezona Emmanuel

    As children of God, we must love, hope and above all trust in God, its through those that our success are guaranteed in life. Nice poem

  • UCHE EMMANUEL

    It’s indeed inspirational.

  • uzor Victoria NKeiruka

  • HOPE for survival is what keeps humans alive and makes us succeed even when the journey of success is difficult. hope of winning gives us the strength to continue the journey of life.

  • Atudume B. Chinwendu

    We should all emulate the character of Lazarus, his hope and faith towards God even in his condition, we should understand that tomorrow holds so many promises, for the gift of life is a reason to be hopeful.

    Once there is life there is hope..

  • Agi Comfort Obahi

    I believe that HOPE is a necessity for all humans, that moment we want to give up we remember this word (Hope) which whispers silently to our ears making us not to give up.
    Giving up is only for failures for if you want to be successful we fall and rise again and that rising again is Hope…God is the generator of Hope.

  • Amarachi Deborah Ugwu

    Everything in life is all about hope. Even when things are at the worse stage, we still hope it turns out good. Life itself is built on hope, thats why the igbo adage says”Nke iru ka” and so we keep hoping and believing God for the best. Jisike ma

    Hope comes with faith, and its not also by hoping we also workhard to fulfill our hopes. God is always there for us and reaching out for us, that’s if we have hope. Hope is very important!

  • Akuma Victor

  • judith

    Hope is essential in our daily lives, even when there is nothing we still make something worth while from it

  • Having hope is very important in every Christians life, when we have hope ,our problem is half solved for it is said that the future have better tidings for us.

  • This is a nice one ma.You have really touched me with this great poem on hope. it has made me to really understand that only hope can one have to live up to expectation in life. so long as one lives in life one should always be filled with hope to achieve great things in future and also accompany it with faith only in God and not in man, because the bible said in Matthew 19:26 that“With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

  • Catherine Anokwuru

    Hope keeps us going all the time. Do we wonder why those who commit suicide make the decision to do so? Because they have lost all hope. While having hope, we should learn to fix our hope in the right source, we should place our hope in God and not in man for He is the author and finisher of our faith. As long as we have hope, we have a tomorrow. Let’s learn to live life one day at a time.

  • WOW! I never knew this side of Solomon. No matter how everything seems meaningless like the case of Solomon, there is always something new because “life is infinite”.

  • Venessa Stephen

    This poem is thought-provoking,
    There always comes a time in our life, that we feel depressed, it seems nothing is working,because of this, people commit suicide but if we can have faith in God and hope for a better tomorrow, we will realize that life is worth living.
    As for me, as long as God exist my tomorrow must be greater than my yesterday.

  • Joan chikadibia Eze

    Truly, there is nothing hidden under the sun but with hope and great work, you can make things new and beautiful for the world to see. Therefore, anything being conceived should be put into reality fully backed up with hope and above all prayers….

  • Jibulu Ngozi

    The saying “when there is life,there is a way”, hope is the foundation most Christians are yet to find because without hope,there is nothing to live for.
    This poem draws our attention to putting all our hope in GOD and how it would eventually make one successful in whatever they do.

  • Oba Cindy Biobele

    Hope keeps faith alive. The poem is really great. When life seems bad, always encourage yourself by having hope.

  • A man without hope is dead, for what is life without hope? There is always something new under the sun. Just look closely and keep hope alive.

  • harriet

    We wake up everyday with hope to achieve things

  • Tochukwu Cyprian

    The introduction reminds me of the popular saying of my dear Fulton Sheen…”Life is Worth Living ” as opposed to the philosopher Albert Camus…. Life is Not Worth living.
    In our dynamic world today where everything changes,their is need for us Hope for things because we live in a world where no one knows what will happen next.
    We are to work and pray and then hope for a result. Usually, people do say hoping for a positive result…. No,God’s foreknowledge supersedes all and as such his will must be done whether we like it or not.
    We are to pray like Jesus in his example while praying on Gethsemane…. “Father, if it is your will let this cup pass over me. It is not my will but may your will be done” We are to accept God’s will and hope on him for He is our Father…For with God,nothing is impossible

  • I love this. This is so true and very powerful. There is always hope and we must trust in the Lord in all the situations of our lives. God bless you.

  • Donna Miller

    This is so incredibly beautiful. Hope is everything. To alot of people, there seems to be no point in carrying on if there is no hope. I pray that everyone will feel the hope that Jesus gives us today. Thank you for your heartfelt post! ❤

  • Hope is believing that the future would be better. Hope keeps us going, it gives us a reason to live. It also encourages the weak and challenges us to do better.

  • Blessing obidudu

    As far as we are alive, there is hope, let hope drive us daily because if we loose hope we start loosing the importance of our humanity!

  • Arene Ifeyinwa Ketochukwu

    The bible says we should have hope for hope does not disappoint because the love of God has been shade abroad in our hearts as children of God (Romans 5:5).

  • Ugama Gloria Nkechinyere

    Hope is dwindling away in people’s mind, leading to suicide actions now. I encourage us to live in hope because when there is life there is hope.

  • Henry

    Hmm. Beautiful one Aunty.
    Hope is not just an easy virtue, especially now things are not as expected. Life may throw all it got on you, but what? Lose yourself in God and you will find hope. Thank you so much Aunty.

  • Ejiofor Emmanuel

    Never say never
    Never give up as long as you are still breathing.
    Be optimistic, have hope and finally have Faith because God is alive

  • Anabude oluchi

    Exactly, there is always something to look forward to in life no matter what we think but be hopeful for a better tomorrow in God because he can never fail his children

  • Duruji Veralin Ogochukwu

    This is really an interesting poem that gave me a very clear insight on the word “hope”, although I got an argument with my roommate (Janessa) on whether there is really anything new under the sun or not. Reading through this poem and from other rational deductions, I’m convinced that there are many things new under the sun and hope helps us look forward to those things to come.

  • Joseph joy

    As long as there’s life there’s hope, every hard working person have a reward, therefore as you are working you are also hoping for your rewards, but the most important thing is to remember that the reward comes from God and we should learn to use it well when we have it.

  • Brown Bethel Ogadimma

    One thing I believe is that, so long as you have life, never say never, keep believing. Even if in process of pursuing your dreams they scatter into pieces, pick up one piece and continue from there. There is always something to look forward to. Some people who gave up, never knew how close they were to success. Just put your trust in God, and you’ll see that life is worth living.

  • Like a saying goes when there is life there hope.so no matter what you pass through the past day always look forward to a better day ahead .

    “It’s wonderful to have something to look forward to”. I for one is looking forward to being a better person, a friend of all, a great and influential person. That is hope. And, “What is life without anticipation of the newness it will bring?” Yes! The newness life brings is in the salvation given to us by Christ. When he gave up his life for us, he gave us hope and his fountain of love brought a newness in our lives. No creature can fly without hope. When we anticipate and hope, we see the need to live and do better. This poemis holy Spirit-inspired I must say. Thanks alot Ma.

    I have a lot to look forward to,sometimes things aren’t rosy but as long there is life never say there’s nothing to look forward to, only the living has hope and it’s a great privilege to be alive.I will keep pressing upward high.

    Is true that there’s always something new and something to hope for because when there’s life, there’s hope. This encourages me a lot.

  • Arthur Ukaga

    I like the artistic nature of this poem. It centers on the aesthetic nature of hope as more than just a feeling in distress. This poem rightly says that we should never see life as a dull affair simply because of bad situations or circumstances. We should always hope for new and better things. That’s what gives life it’s flavour. We should hope in God as well for he can change our troubles. Hope should be enough to pull us through.

  • No matter what circumstances and trials you are going through, never give up. Always hope in God to help you through. Always have hope and look forward to a brighter and better tomorrow, God never forsakes those who have faith and trust in him. Thank you, ma, for this motivational post.

    What is life without hope. Hope is one thing that keeps us moving even when we have no seen the result of what we are doing. In school, we embrace all the stress with hope. Even when we think we have enough just like Solomon, let’s not stop hoping.
    Thanks ma.

    Sometimes, it is really hope that drives life. cause when hope is lost, faith is also lost and it is faith that enables you to hope. And hopelessness is a route to snipy juice.

    ‘Never say never to whatever you do’, there is always hope for you as long you breathe and live “for what is life without hope?”. I believe there is something “new” out there that will definitely capture your fantasy and you can live for. There is always reason to live (in line with recent suicide occurrences) and something that is worth living for, “never say there’s nothing to look forward to”. Nice and hope building and sustaining piece Ma, the message is truly clear.

  • Mbam Patrick Chinonyelum

    if one is passing through the deteriorating times in his life, he or she should always latch on to hope because there is always greater and better expectations awating one in the future and as long as you have life in you, never say there’s nothing to look forward to. since with God all things are possible and one should always remember the saying”that the mills of God grinds slowly”. therefore, be patient and depend strongly on God who is the author and finisher of our existence.you are blessesd ma.

    Hope is indeed necessary. It spurs you to look up to the best and be patient. Hope brings positive vibes and thoughts of a better tomorrow.

  • Eze Chioma

    Hope and faith are the two things that pushes me through whenever I feel like nothing is working out for me. I found out that life is truly infinite in its possibilities and while something may not work out as planned, we should hope and have faith because God is indeed vast and mysterious, he may have something far greater in store for you.

  • Chinelobi Treasure Oluchi

    God is vast and layered in mystery… He has so much in store for His children.

    Trying or having an idea to do something new has these feelings that come with it but when your hope is dashed, you are left weaker or stronger.

  • ogbonnaya chioma .F

    there is always something new life has to offer each day, all we need to do is present ourselves for it by giving ourselves hope. God is never out of stock, he has so much in store for us each day of our life’s. the future will definitely be greater than our past and present. “as long as there is live there is hope” this simply means that we should be expectant each day of our life because life breed hope. let’s all believe and trust in the HOPE for a better day.

  • Nnakwe Uchenna

    As long as you have life in you,never say there’s nothing to look forward to. if one is passing through the deteriorating times in his life, he or she should always latch on to hope because there is always greater and better expectations awaiting one in the future.

  • Nnabuihe Victoria

    As long as the earth remains there is hope. No matter the condition you are in or the situation you are going through as long you are alive there is still hope for a better tomorrow.

  • Okorie Adaora N.

    It is said that when there is life there is hope. We should keep hoping everyday because there are better days ahead. We should ne never lose Hope but keep being expectant in our daily lives. With hope, there is always positivity.

  • Egbo Paul Uchenna

    It’s very evident that everything is vanity. Solomon got too familiar with his achievement that he thought he’s seen it all. Forgetting that God is a mysterious God.I wish I can taste a bit of how it feels to have everything. Wishful thought.

  • Duru Joselyn Amarachi

    To live in hope and anticipation is great gain. I say this because it’s wonderful to wake up to see what the day has in store for you irrespective of how you have planned it to be.
    It is more wonderful to have new ideas in your head or goals with which you always live for and hope to accomplish.
    The word of God says his words are new every morning. We should place our hope in Him and learn to live for each day as best as we could for we just might be living the last.

  • Never say there’s nothing to look forward to.. Let’s put our hopes in God, and of course, He ll never fail us.

  • Richards Orighomisan

    There is no Hope without Christ, so if we must live in hope, we must first accept the finished work of Christ for us on the cross, a song writer said “Because He lives, I can face tomorrow” a perfect example of one whose hope is fully in Christ.

  • Vincentia Charles chisom

    They said the gods are jealous of our lives, because they already know the future and as such life is boring to them. We wish to wake up tomorrow because of the excitement we are yet to experience. For if we don’t have hope, what are we waking up for!?
