Your Turn: Hope

For several months now, I have been sharing my thoughts on Jesus’ core teachings. I would love to hear yours! (Share your thoughts in the box below.)

  • What is hope to you?
  • Have you ever experienced hope when there was no hope?
  • Are there any Scriptures that are meaningful to you when you think of hope?
  • Is there any art, poetry, or music that fills you with hope?

Don’t be overwhelmed! Share as much or little as you like. I look forward to hearing from you!

P.S. If this is the first time you post to the website I have to approve your comment. It’s one of those annoying things that must be done to stop soulless spammers from taking over the universe.

    Turn to God, he is our hope. The voice that helps you reason and make sense of the issue.

      Agreed! And for me, sometimes that Voice gives me reason for hope even when it all seems like nonsense!

    I came to the very sobering realization a few days ago that a difficult situation I have lived with for over twenty years will probably continue until I am with the Lord. The good news is that the basis for HOPE is not conditional upon the healing of the situation. The basis for HOPE comes from knowing and trusting in the ONE who has faithfully, consistently, and purposefully sustained, provided, and grown me through these many years, AND that because of Who He is, He will continue to do so until I am with Him, to His glory.

      Staring a situation like this in the face with hope is a beautiful example of living in the Kingdom of God. Thanks for sharing this!

    In this fallen broken world hope in God is the only thing we can cling to. It seems like every time I start hoping in something on earth there is a death to my hope or vision. Thank God that all things work together for good even though I don’t understand it now.

      I love this, David. Back to brokenness. God is always prying my fingers off of life that only APPEARS to be life. I don’t like it but I know it’s good for me.
