My limited understanding of hope

an email I just sent off:

I was thinking about the question of hope that I kept raising. I think the answer that you gave is correct. I forgot about God's soveignty over everything and thought that it was impossible for hope to lead to endurance in a logical manner.

To sum up my thoughts:

It isn't hope that directly produces endurance, but it is God using hope as an occasion on which to grant us endurance. Likewise, when we endure, God can use that occasion to give us hope. Nothing we do is on our own, but rather it is God who moves in us and works his works in all things.
