Handing Out Hope

We live in perilous times. The economy. War. Moral deterioration. It's enough to make even a Christian despair. I admit I am sometimes in that mode. But, I should be a hope giver.

I have a personal relationship with the Almighty God. He loves me. He is my father. He takes care of me in all circumstances, good and bad. He gives me comfort when I am in despair. He listens when I pray to him.

Although not visible, my relationship to him is far more real than with flesh and blood persons. He cares about every aspect of my life. He want to live his life out through me so that the whole world can know he loves them too and wants to have the same kind of relationship with them. Do you think that message could bring hope into a world that is writhing in fear and uncertainty? I do. Let's share it!

Hoping I can be a hope giver, Gloria
