The cancer patient who has been declared terminal and for whom every medical report looks bleak - what is left?
The parents whose child has been in a coma and for whom every minute feels like a lifetime while they wait in anticipation against all odds for her to wake up - their hearts want it to have happened yesterday, but will it ever? There is just no way knowing if it will ever happen - what can they do?
When your debts are piling up as high as the mountaintops and no amount of extra hours can help you break it down - what options do you have?
The wife or husband who longs for the happy marriage they once had; who is tired of the conflict and harsh words. Where did it all go wrong? How does one turn around and have the hope of being loved again?
The parent whose child wandered from home and for whom it feels that no amount of prayer can bring that child back - how can he keep going on without losing hope?
When you wait for a breakthrough and you did everything you know to remain positive but no door seems to open - do you continue to stand on that promise or do you start looking for something else?
Has all hope been lost?
There is only one Hope left, … J-E-S-U-S.
His touch can bring healing.
He can breathe new life into any devastating situation.
He cancelled the debts of your sin on the cross; He can also cancel your debts of this world. He is your Provider.
He brings reconciliation where war seemed like the only outcome. He restores you to a place that is better than the beginning.
He finds the lost, even when they do not want to be found. He is the compass that helps the lost find their way.
He outlasts every obstacle and can turn it into a stepping stone. He is the key to every door that should open.
When you have Jesus, you have Hope. He is the Hope when all hope has been lost. There is no end to the possibilities in Him. When darkness overtakes you; when people walk out on you; money seems to keep drying up - you can still stand in Him. Christ, the Hope in you is alive.
