A hope that doesn’t disappoint

Viktor Frankl, a survivor of the Auschwitz Nazi concentration camp, tells how hope was the most important factor in surviving. Hope is the belief that things can change. It sustains us. It helps us deal with suffering and disappointments. It’s important that we learn to deal effectively with such disappointments, including the need to mourn a sense of loss before moving on. Often, when we trust God, he will bring turnaround in his way and his timing. As Christians, our deepest sense of hope is that Jesus paid for our sins on the cross and rose triumphantly from the grave. All things will be put right when he returns!

> Bring your disappointments to God and renew your trust in him. Read and meditate on Romans 15.13.
