Hope...we have nothing if we don't have Hope.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
Romans 15:13
I've always loved the words to this old hymn.
Soft as the voice of an angel,
Breathing a lesson unheard,
Hope with a gentle persuasion
Whispers her comforting word:
Wait till the darkness is over,
Wait till the tempest is done,
Hope for the sunshine tomorrow,
After the shower is gone. 
Whispering hope, oh, how welcome thy voice,
Making my heart in its sorrow rejoice.

Billy Graham once said, “The greatest need in our world today is the need for hope. We thrive on hope, we rejoice in hope, we witness in hope, knowing that experience works hope. ‘Happy is he . . . whose hope is in the Lord his God (Psalm 146:5).’ There is hope for the future. It is centered in the Person of Jesus Christ who died for our sins and rose from the grave and is alive now. I have staked all that I am or ever hope to be on Him."

 Because He Lives, I have Hope for tomorrow.
Don't you?

You are my hiding place and my shield:
I hope in Your Word.
Psalm 119:114

 Only when we look to the truly firm foundation for living -- Jesus Christ -- will we find a hope that can anchor our souls.

..rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer;
Romans 12:12

Jesus Christ is the Hope of the world.

Until Next Time
