Have you ever allowed your circumstances to dictate your feelings? I believe this is exactly what happened to Jacob after he thought he had lost his son Joseph. He was discouraged and hopeless, bitter and had lost all hope. (Genesis 45:25-28)
What he didn’t know is that Joseph was very much alive and once the truth broke into his heart scripture says, “his heart was revived.”  Proverbs 13:12 says “hope deferred makes the heart sick.” That is exactly what was happening to Jacob and it happens to me and you all the time!  As we travel along our path, it is vital to fix our eyes on Him and allow Him to strengthen our heart as you journey. Even when things look bleak, there is always Hope in Jesus! 
“Things are never as they appear. Hope, therefore, cannot be based on circumstances and people but in the Living God. Iva May

 “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say on the LORD!” (Psalm 27:13-14).
