For some reason this didn’t go through before, but today we get to wrap up the Hope Restored series with some thoughts from my awesome mom! First she shares this verse from Psalm 71:
But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you Lord more and more.
She tells of how faith and hope work together in her life as well as where she sees hope being restored around her:
Faith and Hope have been with me my entire life …Both of which have gotten me through some pretty tough times. Both of which have gotten me to the high points of my life. Both of which have help make my life complete. I will always have hope in my future because of the Faith I have in Christ Jesus.
I am so very fortunate to see hope every day. When a 16 year old learns to say their phone number for the first time…. hope is restored for his future. When that light comes on for a 15 year old that realizes he can finally read a whole story, hope is restored. I will always have hope that I can make a difference and I can have this hope for their future as well as my future because of the promises God has made me. He will be with me no matter what. He is there by my side. He is my Savior…..He gives me hope.
How do faith and hope work together in your life? Where have you seen hope restored recently?
