Your life is hard, sometimes tragic. You struggle at times, occasionally painfully. You are bombarded by bad news from around the world, often in real time. Put it all together and it’s no wonder you are tempted to give up on hope and give in to despair. Which is exactly why it is important to remember there is something infinitely more real than all the despair in the world put together. God is still God. God is at work right now bringing healing, reconciliation and new life. And what God longs for will become as real on earth as it already is in heaven. Sure, it’s going against the grain to believe this. Of course, it’s counter-cultural to embrace it. And, yes, it’s an act of incredible faith to live it. But when you do, you’ll discover what it’s like to live with hope every single day.
