Jeremiah 17:7 - Hope Has a Name.
Jeremiah 17:7 (NLT) But blessed are those
who trust in the LORD and have made the LORD
their hope and confidence.
Have you ever felt as though your life
doesnt matter, that no one cares about you, or that
no one would miss you if you were gone?

But when I came to faith in Jesus Christ,
it changed the course of my life. Now I feel
like I can take the pain and hardship Ive been
through and use it to help others.
Dr. Robert McNair Wilson, a British
cardiologist, wrote, Hope is the medicine I use more
than any other - hope can cure nearly
Could you use some of that medicine
today? Hope has a name, and its Jesus Christ.
God can take all the hurt and pain
youve experienced in life and use it to touch
other people. He can make you into the person that
He wants you to be. [Greg Laurie from Harvest
