Hope & Patience . . .

If we hope for what we do not see,
we wait for it with patience.
Romans 8:25

Are you going through a difficult time right now? Have you lost hope that circumstances will ever change? Hopelessness can rob you of joy and steal each precious moment.

Biblical hope is more than just expectation or a desire that something wonderful is waiting around the bend. It is a confident trust that God's plans for your life are right and good. When you put your trust in Him, no matter what is happening at the moment, you can look to today and your future with hope because He is there.

God Himself is your hope, in this life and for all eternity. You can confidently step into your future, knowing that God will always be with you~~no matter what.

There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great,
and no tonic so powerful as expectation
of something tomorrow.
