The Word of God is filled with hope. Jesus Christ, who came to this Earth, died on the cross, and rose again to make all things new, offers hope for any situation we face. My life would not be the same without those words of hope. I struggled with so much in my life and at times I felt hopeless. But I've learned that when you're feeling hopeless, overwhelmed, burdened, and alone, reading the Bible can produce strength and power for us to get through those tough times. The word of God keeps us moving on in the grace and love of God.
Starting with my favorite, may these 7 Bible verses renew your strength and give you hope to help in the tough times:
