Yes, Captain Marvel is my hero. One thing that I can always count on when I read one of his comic adventures is having the feeling that I want to be just like him. No, not necessarily having super powers, but being a decent, stand-up human being - one that puts others before himself and stands up for what's right. Captain Marvel does that to me. With that in mind, I've decided to incorporate some inspirational and encouraging words on my Captain Marvel blogs from time to time. These will be words and thoughts that embody the Captain Marvel spirit.
This post is my first one. I wrote these words several years ago during a time of great loss for our family. I wrote the words to myself as a reminder and now I share them with you and pray they are an encouragement and inspiration to you.
One thing that can never be taken away from you is hope. Hope - there is a chance. Hope - there is another way. Hope - keep fighting and keep punching and refuse to give up.
It doesn't matter what the bad news is or what are the odds. Those things have nothing to do with hope. The only time hope will be extinguished is when you decide to give it up.
Hope gives strength. Hope gives strength to face another day or face another minute. Hope gives strength to not give in to despair. Hope gives strength to fight another round. Hope gives strength.
