It hits you in a moment of startling truth. You don’t have much hope. Maybe it’s the headlines or a personal tragedy or something that has turned your world upside. So what are you to do? Embrace John Wesley’s words,  ”The best of all, God is with us.” When you are able to do this through the grace of God, you will experience a startling truth. You do have hope – real hope. Not because you have created it. But because you have experienced God’s presence, power and promise.
