Simon Kistemaker wrote, “Hope teaches endurance and an eager anticipation of that which will become reality.” Sometimes the challenges of life seem too much to bear. Newly released suicide statistics prove more people have lost hope. Jesus warned that in this world we would experience trouble. He may have been referring to seniors dealing with technology. Christians have the Blessed Hope which allows us to endure even the most difficult problems. Romans 15:13, May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
