Stories of Hope

What keeps you going when your life falls apart, when circumstances seem unbearable and continuing on seems impossible?

In my deepest pain during Dave’s illness, I had no strength to go to God with—but sometimes I would listen to the story of someone else trusting God through their pain, and somehow their words would lift me into Jesus’ arms, and He would carry me into God’s presence. My prayer is that God will use these “Hope stories” to lift you into Jesus’ arms at a time when you feel too weary to walk. I know God is waiting for you. Come, let’s go together.
