Hope is one of my favorite words. Holding onto hope brings peace in the most troubling times. The emotional climate surrounding our current presidential race can rob us of hope in what really matters if we allow the media frenzy to consume us. We cannot place hope for our future in a presidential candidate—our hope must rest in God alone, for He alone can save us for eternity. When temptation to wallow in despair attacks you, close your eyes, speak the name of His Son…Jesus…and remind yourself that HE is our only Hope and Stay. Peace will descend in your soul.
