The Gift of Hope…
Does hope seem as distant to you as the horizon across the ocean? Are you wondering whether you can ever regain the stability of hope in your life? The first thing to keep in mind is that hope is not a feeling, but rather is a gift to you from God—hope is His anchor that He has already thrown out to stabilize your heart and life.
