Hope, it seems, is not related to our circumstances but rather to our relationships. (Kip Cone, pastor)

The Bible often speaks about hope and faith together. “Faith shows the reality of what we hope for” (Hebrews 11:1). Faith is only as good as its object. (Don’t put your faith, for example, in a broken chair.) Hope, on the other hand, is the expectation of something promised by someone with whom you have a trusting relationship.

 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. (Romans 15:13)
