A Voice from the Past - Spurgeon

When I cannot rejoice in what I have, I will look forward to what shall be mine, and will still rejoice. Hope will live on a bare common and sing on a branch laden down with snow. No date and no place are unsuitable for hope. Hell alone excepted, hope is a dweller in all regions. We may always hope, for we always have grounds for it: we will always hope, for it is a never-failing consolation.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon, 1834-1892, The Treasury of David, Vol. 2, Psalm 71:14 (Hendrickson Publishers, p. 210)

How important is it to have hope? How can we maintain hope in difficult times?
