I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.Romans 15:13
Hope is the future gaze of faith. It believes there will be great outcomes and victories, and is willing to wait patiently for them.~ Pastor Bob Barnett
Finding God in the Darkby Ted Kluck & Ronnie Martin
An Honest, Hopeful Look at Christian Doubt and Disappointment
Doubt often has less to do with the head than the heart. When Christians go through trials–from unmet personal expectations to the death of a loved one–they often feel like God has abandoned them, or maybe he never cared at all. Kluck and Martin walk readers through dark times in their own lives to reveal a God of love who never forsakes his children. Here is grace and hope for any believer struggling to believe.
Finding Peaceby Dr. Charles F. Stanley
Filled with encouragement to lift the soul, Finding Peace offers insight on what causes us to live without God’s peace in our lives, and how we can reverse course and open our hearts to receive it. Also, Stanley gives his perspective on the things that hinder peace-including the “Four Great Hallmarks of God’s Peace” and “Five Essential Beliefs for a Peaceful Heart”-to put the important message of this book into concrete terms. Addressing regret, anxiety, and fear, Dr. Stanley extends hope for overcoming the obstacles that block peace with the Lord. Finally, he gives direction on learning to live a life of contentment.
