Why You Need Hope?
Please contact us if you have questions or comments or want encouragement.
Without hope in one’s life, things can be very hard or even impossible. I remember needing a lot of encouragement while growing up, and I still do at times. It is a simple fact that our lives can be very challenging, but God’s love and grace gives us all multiple chances and opportunities to do what is right and honor Him. You will discover that if you put your hope in people or yourself, there will be a time you will learn that people, including yourself, will let you down.
I encourage you to discover the hope you need in your life that comes from Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior. Put your trust in God, and you will not be disappointed. Remember that trusting in God does not mean that all your problems, hurts, and hang-ups will all automatically go away and be resolved overnight. We all need hope to have the strength to battle the issues in our lives. ~ Bill Greguska

Hope Is An Act Of Faith!
We All Get Discouraged…
But Encouragement Is The Act Of Putting Courage Back Into Yourself Or Someone Else!
I can testify that I have lost hope a couple of times in my life; I look back and realize how much of a waste of time and effort that was. When I temporarily took my eyes off of Jesus, it made things harder and was something the devil uses to steal, kill and destroy us. The devil attacked me a couple of times so badly that I wished I could be dead. It took effort to want to be alive; then, I had to figure out how to live again with God’s help! I am so thankful that the Lord could encourage, comfort, direct, and lead certain people into my life to help put courage back into me.

What Does The Word Hope Mean?
The word hope means “a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen,” and it is one of the most precious human emotions. When we believe, and that dream is deferred, it makes us heartsick, but when something desired for is fulfilled, the Bible says, it is “a tree of life” (Proverbs 13:12).
The feeling of expectation is central to every good story—we want a happy ending, and even through the worst circumstances, our desire to see that ending occur is what keeps us reading. The same is true in life. Faithful people can live through terrible events by focusing on that desired outcome. But when confidence is gone, grief is complete (1 Thessalonians 4:13).
What Is The Hope If You Are Christian?
Most people understand hope as wishful thinking, as in, “I expect something will happen.” This is not what the Bible means it. The biblical definition is “confident expectation.” Hope is a firm assurance regarding unclear and unknown things (Romans 8:24-25; Hebrews 11:1, Hebrews 11:7).
Hope is a fundamental component of the life of the righteous (Proverbs 23:18). Without optimism, life loses its meaning (Lamentations 3:18; Job 7:6), and in death, there is no hope (Isaiah 38:18; Job 17:15).
The righteous who trust or put their belief in God will be helped (Psalm 28:7), and they will not be confounded, put to shame, or disappointed (Isaiah 49:23). The righteous, who have this trustful confidence in God, have a general belief in God’s protection and help (Jeremiah 29:11) and are free from fear and anxiety (Psalm 46:2-3).
