Nothing Helps Like Hope
by Charles R. Swindoll
Let us hold fast the confession
of our hope without wavering,
for He who promised is faithful.
Hebrews 10:23
Hope is a wonderful gift from God, a source of strength and courage in the face of life’s harshest trials.

When we are trapped in a tunnel of misery, hope points to the light at the end.

When we are overworked and exhausted, hope gives us fresh energy.

When we are discouraged, hope lifts our spirits.

When we are tempted to quit, hope keeps us going.

When we struggle with a crippling disease or a lingering illness, hope helps us persevere beyond the pain.

When we fear the worst, hope brings reminders that God is still in control.

When we are forced to sit back and wait, hope gives us the patience to trust.

Put simply, when life hurts and dreams fade, nothing helps like hope.
