"Power of Hope !"

Greetings my friends in Christ . There are so many people  in our world today who are in need of some encouraging words of hope. I recently met a person in Daytona Beach who just needed some kind words of hope & encouragement. This person felt that there was just no hope left for her life problem. I then shared with her the bible verse from Jeremiah 29:11 

That verse says that God " knows the plans He has for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future " . Sharing this scripture verse and praying for her brightened up her day .  Simple words of hope and encouragement from the bible can make a difference in a person's life. That is what the " power of hope " and simply praying can do for anyone

One person can change the world by giving hope to those who need it. History has shown us what one person can do . People like Washington, Lincoln, Mandela, ML King and a young girl from Pakistan - Malala all changed the world for the better. A beachside Methodist church in Daytona over the past ten years has handed out over 17,000 cross necklaces to visitors & guests from all over the USA and the world, a simple message of hope in Jesus Christ

Life is not fair and you will fail often, but if you are willing to take some risks, step up when the times are the toughest, and never ever give up - you can bring the  " power of hope "  to many people .  Do this and future generations will live in a world far better than the one you live in today !

have a blessed day,  Gary
