Love always hopes…
– 1 Corinthians 13:7 (NIV)
Love is hope when reason despairs.
– Jack Hyles
If you’ll quit moaning and crying, I’ll use the things to make you into someone I can use in the lives of others to show them that no matter where they’ve been, no matter how deep the hole, no matter how painful the trial, there’s hope. There is victory.
– Kay Arthur
Love always points to a brighter day ahead. Love is the lifeline that the hurting can hold on to.
– Philip Ryken
Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with His love.
– Romans 5:2-5 (NLT)
