Hope in times of Hopelessness

Newspapers are full of bad news, economic uncertainties, persistent problems , more strife and terrorism. Many leaders are pessimistic not only about our nation’s future, but their own as well. Friends are not faithful; marriages are not stable; streets are not safe. Financial struggles, job problems, health problems. Life is depressing for many people. Where does a person turn to find hope?
The only hope that has substance is found in the gospel. The gospel does not promise a charmed life filled with constant blessings, but it gives solid assurance that life is worth living, that problems are worth enduring, that the risks of life are worth taking. The gospel provides hope that there is more to life than what we can see. The invisible world is even more real than the world we see. Even the sun will eventually fade away, but spiritual realities will not.
