I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.
We tend to think of hope as a thought-wish, something we want to believe could happen. This “wishful thinking” weakens the value of hope because the source of our hope is more certain than a mere wish.
God is the source of hope. Whenever I keep my eyes on my circumstances, I begin to feel hopeless. When I remember to look to God, He restores my hope. God is able to do all the things He promises to do. There is no wishful thinking involved. God’s promises are secure and I can hope they will come true because they will. They may not come true in the way I expect. They may not even come true in my lifetime. But I can die in faith believing they will come true because God never fails.

About twice a month I send out a brief email containing free PDF downloads, updates on what projects I’m writing, and insider news on special offers. After all, friends get the best stuff!
You’ll find my brand of humor in many of the emails, especially in funny photos. There is joy in the Lord and we all need to laugh more.
I respect your privacy so I don’t even collect your name (I will need your email address, though!). I don’t like SPAM any more than you do so I’ll never sell or trade your information and my email service, MailChimp, stores your information on secure servers.
If you ever decide my content is not right for you, you can easily unsubscribe using the link at the bottom of each email.
No strings attached. No long-term commitments. No overwhelming volume of emails. Just fun, free downloads once or twice a month. How’s that sound?
