.Hoping is much better than Wishing
Wishing Hope: is like a road in the country. There was never a road–but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence. Those who walk that road wish in a vacuum with no sure direction.
Confident Hope: is NOT following a road because it is well-worn and reliable, but it is using a road because it is going somewhere good, and that road is used by a well-worn and reliable guide.
Gospel Hope: comes into existence when the road we travel is the way of Christ that leads to heaven, paved by the Cross, made sure by the Resurrection, and when our reliable guide is the Holy Spirit Himself who resides within us. “Christ in you, the Hope of Glory!”
