My favorite word is “hope.” People without hope are, imho, the saddest people in the world. Christians, however, are NEVER without hope, because we KNOW Jesus already has the victory–the Bible says so. We KNOW we are loved–Jesus proved it on Calvary. We KNOW we have a home waiting in heaven–Jesus promised it. Nothing of this world can change any of those truths. So we can cling to His promises and remember circumstances never change who we are to Him and who He is to us. My hope is in HIM!
