Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.


Hope. It’s that elusive thing we can’t live without.  Like air, we can’t see or touch it, but we can’t live without it.  It’s what keeps us going each day—especially on challenging days.  When I’m overwhelmed and can’t see how negative things can turn around and lead to a positive outcome, we need to remember  that if we persevere,  we may see how and when things turn for the better. Giving up ensures we never will.
How do you maintain hope in the midst of trials?  Don't forget to join the conversation.

Having emerged from the other side of many difficult, turbulent years of marriage, I counsel other women in difficult relationships to not give up. Had I thrown in the towel I would never have experienced seeing how God truly changed my husband. These are the best years of our marriage.

God's given you the opportunity to speak into other people's lives because of what you've gone through. Thanks for chiming in.
