and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us (Romans 5:5)
As we live through this world-wide pandemic, some people may be asking themselves and even God 'where is the hope?'. We just celebrated Easter this past Sunday. Let us not forget that not only does Jesus' death and resurrection provide salvation, it provides hope. Hope in hopeless times. Hope in devastating times. Hope in all times.
When we lose hope, it's usually because we are focusing on our current, past or even future circumstances. Keep your eyes and hearts focused on God. We do not and cannot understand God's way. As God's children we can trust Him to turn any and all situations around for our good. He has promised us this. He loves us and only wants the best for us.
For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11)
If we have a relationship with Jesus Christ, then our hope is found in Him. If you do not know Jesus and do not have hope or feel hopeless, please reach out to Jesus by asking Him to draw near to you. There are resources on line to help you come to know Jesus as your Savior and friend.
