Romans 4:13 5:5

A Christ follower’s hope is not the same as unfounded optimism. It is confident expectation and assurance that our future is based on God’s love.

When you experience something difficult, such the death a loved one, a divorce, financial trouble or physical decline, it can be easy to lose hope. You’ve probably wondered, “Why is this happening?” Even in these moments, we can put our trust in God. He hears us. He loves us. He will show us the next step and give us the strength to take it.

Philippians 4: 6-7 says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

God will give us peace, and with that comes the hope to move forward. Are carrying burdens today? Ask God for help. He wants us to share our heart with Him. Cast your burden on His loving shoulders.
