Hope despite turmoils

One cannot have hope without faith. When people have hope they have faith, because they hold a belief that says “I believe that the future will be better. ” And while they have no grounds to “prove” the hopeful assumption, they have faith in it. We need to put our hope in the lord, despite the midst of turmoils that we are facing. During these difficult times that Rwanda is passing through of Commemoration of 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi, Rwandans we need to have hope of rebirth, unity , reconciliation and hope for a bright future. Remembering always Hope sees the invisible, touches the intangible and achieves the impossible.

Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

God has given us incredible promises. If you are running low on hope, go to the Bible to recharge! We need to 

We have an incredible hope. But sometimes life can “get in the way” and it can be hard to hold on to that hope. There are many Bible verses about hope that encourage us and remind us of how much we have to hope for! If we read more the bible, we would figure out that God can never abandon us. 

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Our hope is that after we have lived this life for Jesus we will be like Him and we will be with Him eternally. That is what we live for. This requires that we do not have our focus on things of the earth, but that we have our eyes set in the heavenly places.

Many of my colleagues and my friends take me for a nerd, someone who is always in books. Honestly I am so proud that they see me that way,but there comes times when I fail all my tests and papers in class despite the reading. During those moments of failure, I start thinking that i am dumb or where I did wrong to fail. All of the sudden , I remember that life is full of trials and challenges, and to renew my faith in the Lord, I constantly need to learn from life. I pray hard and I regain hope in the future that God has in store for me.

The future can be a scary thing, with so many uncertainties. Who knows what tomorrow might bring? When we have faith in Christ, however, we have hope not only in this life, but in the next. The future, while uncertain, can be entrusted to God, and He will help us through.

Even though we are to have hope in the future God has for us, there are going to be times when we have suffering and pain in our lives.  God tells us that suffering helps produce in us perseverance and character, which will lead to hope.

So while we are in the midst of suffering, we should look to Him, not only to give us strength, but to give us patience and the ability to endure. Better things are yet to come!

God has constantly given you some hope for the future and an assurance that he is always with you. With him we always have hope!

Prayer starter: Dear heavenly father, I put in front of you all my fears and life challenges .show me the right way and give me hope in the future. I ask you for strength, perseverance and unbreakable faith in you. Be with us and bring victory in our lives. Amen.
