Hope Awakens Your Soul and Gives New Strength!

Hope is not a weak sentiment, but it is a robust and vigorous confidence built on knowing that we will get through this trial of loneliness, separation, and grief over our loss. Shipwreck occurs following a loss, but we don’t have to stay that way forever thanks to the assurance of the living hope within us!

If you are feeling alone and lost today, don’t give up! Remember that just as the sun has risen to awaken a new day, so will the hope that is asleep in you be awakened to meet your needs for courage and the will to go on to find your new normal in a world that is now so different for you.

When you begin to falter, surround yourself with nature and fill your heart and soul be renewed with fresh hope! Watch for the evening stars to light up the dark sky, and know that the hope that is abiding in you will light up your darkest night,

Trust. Cast aside fear. Remind yourself often that you are not alone. And, soon you will be filled with new hope to carry you through! --Clara Hinton

“Hope is that heroic step of throwing yourself into total confidence in God.” --Clara Hinton

“And now, Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in Thee.” --Psalm 39:7
