Tragedy shakes the very foundation of your world. It not only leaves you overwhelmed, afraid and angry, tragedy also depletes you of the one thing you must have: hope. No wonder you turn to God seeking that hope. But it’s easy to focus so much on the hope you think you need, that you fail to see all the signs of God’s hope already there. So take a second, third and fourth look and see signs of God’s hope in first responders who willingly risk their lives to save others; in prayers spontaneously shared; in the generosity of people who offer their money, time and talents to help; in every act that proclaims fear, hate and evil will never win; and in the laughter of children. Yes, God is a God of hope. Real hope. Transforming hope. Eternal hope. And God longs for this hope to fill you to overflowing.
