There is tremendous energy in the present power of a future hope. (Linda Brumbaugh, blog writer)

Life often seems dark and foreboding. Whether it’s the failures of the past or today’s discouragements, sometimes it seems that life is overwhelming. When we are in a dark place, it’s difficult to think about the future, isn’t it? That’s where genuine hope is needed—not in the circumstances of this life but in the hope Jesus offers those who trust him.

We are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior. (Philippians 3:20)
