Hope can make all the difference in our lives. Hope is the energy that powers us forward and helps us accomplish something that others think is impossible. On the other hand, some of us might be experiencing hopelessness. We might feel let down and drained of all energy. We know we have lost hope. In the message this week, Pastor Fred will help us find the lifeline of hope that God extends to us.
Some of us have faced burnout. We just don’t feel like doing it anymore. Some are tired or exhausted. Sometimes burnout and depression are so severe that we might say, “God just take my life!” We may feel like the prophet Elijah. Yet God ministered to Elijah’s burnout through the sound of sheer silence.
Life can knock us down so that we lose hope. The Apostle Paul believes that the story of Abraham can renew us with hope.
