KeyLife | Looking for a Stronger Hope

“I believe hope plays the critical role. You’ll find it pretty hard to love when you’ve lost hope; hopelessness collapses into who cares? And what does it matter that we have faith if we have no hope? Faith is just a rigid doctrine with nothing to look forward to. Hope is the wind in your sails, the spring in your step.

Numerous lessons could be learned, but here are four specific takeaways we should consider.”
