Hope in our times...how many occasions are there in a day where we don't know the answer to a problem? The secret? To look with in and find our answers . Jesus said-"For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently."-Romans 8:24-25
Sounds easy...be patient and wait...
