Faith is assurance and trust that even if our dreams fail, the pursuit of them is worthwhile.  Faith is an endorsement of ends regardless of successful (or unsuccessful) means.  James Earl Ray had hopes that he could assassinate Martin Luther King, Jr., but even if he did not, he had faith that what he intended to do was the right thing to do.  Martin Luther King hoped to realize dreams of brotherhood, but even if the he did not, he knew his dreams were validated by the Eternal.  Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego had hopes that God would protect them, but even if he did not this would not diminish their faith in him nor diminish their conviction in the rectitude of their actions.  Humankind does what it can or will energized by hope, but looks for fundamental and ultimate validation from transcendental powers.  Thus in human affairs, hope is always of necessity buttressed by faith.
