For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. – Psalm 62:5 (ESV)
In order to have hope, we must allow God to work in our lives as He sees fit.
…for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure. – Philippians 2:13 (ESV)
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. – Philippians 1:6 (ESV)
