"As for me, I will always have HOPE."

With HOPE AT HOME 2011 only a few days away you can imagine that we are busy with preparations and lots of prayer. We are filled with a sense of anticipation for what God wants to do in our lives. It's not too late to register for Hope at Home 2011 Conference-- just click HERE. But if you are not able to attend this year, we will let you know soon how you can listen to the awesome speakers online.

I have been thinking about HOPE a lot lately. In one of the first posts on this blog we shared that the hope we refer to is not the hope that the world knows. Not a hope that is dependent on your circumstances, on others' behavior, on our moods, or even on our level of faith at any given moment. It's not the hope of wishful thinking, simply "hoping" that things will work out in the end. True biblical HOPE rather is the confident expectation for good. This hope is available to us as believers in Jesus, for it comes from Him. He, in fact, is our hope! We do not look to the world around us, nor do we look to ourselves, our parenting techniques or even to our faith for this hope. We look to Jesus, and find Hope for every situation. Such wonderful Good News!

It is our desire to release, proclaim and impart this wonderful hope to all who attend Hope at Home 2011. Hope that will transform us and that will position us to see God's goodness in our midst and in our homes.

Enjoy these scriptures, filled with HOPE! 

Romans 15:13
May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.
