The Genius And Power Of Hope

Hope is a small word. But it is one of the most powerful. Why? Because in hope lies the power of the human soul to turn to God and live as if his promises are going to come true. 

Some people think hope is an emotion. "I'm feeling hopeful," they say. But true hope is a discipline, a determination to believe in God's reality and power, even when the world seems to be crashing down around you. 

This is the genius and the power of hope.
