"Every pastor's wife needs hope. Every pastor needs hope. Every ministry family needs hope. Every church needs to multiply hope. And every layperson in every church needs hope. Simply stated, hope means you can count on God's promises in spite of circumstances and limitations. He is always faithful, reliable, trustworthy and honest. He guarantees His promises. Apply those words to your situation—faithful, reliable, honest, trustworthy and guaranteeing. Try seeing your setting through God's perspective. Then, in a matter of seconds, obstacles and hindrances look so different. Keep hope alive, regardless of the obstacles."
