What does Hope mean to me?

Hope means opportunity.
Opportunity to listen, opportunity to share, the opportunity to care and help others.

Hope is the chance we get to see God's hands and feet demonstrating acts of LOVE through all of us.

It is these acts of LOVE that can bring positive impact and change to those around as well as others we do not see.

Every encounter we have, there is an opportunity to impact someone. HOPE is right there in its mitts, as God shapes and designs these encounters in the hopes of spreading LOVE.

LOVE can take on many forms, the love of a spouse, child, parent, neighbor or friend. LOVE can bring light to the darkness. As we learn, feel and know God's LOVE, his light can never be extinguished by darkness.

I believe that we all have something to share, to pass on, to encourage, to LOVE others.

As Romans 8:24 states:
We were given this HOPE when we were saved. If we already have something, we don't need to hope for it.

As we move forward share HOPE with others, whether it is on the trail, with our family, in our workplace, or someone God has placed in our path.

My HOPE is that we LOVE GOD and LOVE others.

Through Hope Water International will have the opportunity live out God's purpose.

Please help support this great cause and spread the word of Hope. Thank you so much!
