“Hope” ordinarily is an expectation or a desire for an improvement in things of life – and work.
The expectation of results will be based on some logical sequence of things you may have done or being doing.
So, to “hope” or have hope that things will improve or get better should imply some prior work.
And to “hope” without work backed by prayer is a dangerous thing to do – as nothing happens that way.
So, as we begin a new week, your “hope” for improvements in your work, life etc. should be anchored realistically on your work and prayer.
Don’t just hope and expect miracles.
