My Kind of Hope
Put your hope in Me, because I love you ... always.
Hope — My kind of hope — is very different from any other kind. It is more than a wish or a dream. It is expecting Me to keep My promises, because you know that I will. One of My greatest promises is to give you a happy ending to your story.
Yes, your story — because your life is a story. Put your hope in Me by trusting Me as your Savior and following Me. I promise that your adventure will end with a happily-ever-after in heaven with Me. I died on the cross so that you can have a forever like this!
No matter how tough this day may be, you can always have hope ... because in Me, your story has an amazing ending. And knowing that will brighten even your darkest day.

So our hope is in the Lord. He is our help, our shield to protect us. We rejoice in him. We trust his holy name. Lord, show your love to us as we put our hope in you. —Psalm 33:20-22
That faith and that knowledge come from our hope for life forever. God promised that life to us before time began, and God does not lie. —Titus 1:2CHAPTER 2
Not One Single Thing
Nothing can separate you from My Love.
Nothing you do or say or think will ever make Me stop loving you. It just isn't possible, because you're My precious one.
My Love is a gift. You don't have to earn it. You don't have to be perfect or even good enough. My Love is simply yours to keep. It secures your connection to Me — your Savior — forever.
So when everything is going well and you are happy, enjoy it. Don't worry about when the good might end or what troubles may come later. Just smile and thank Me! When things are tough, be brave! I will help you, I will never leave you, and I will love you no matter what.
This world will always have troubles. But there's one thing you never have to worry about, one thing you can always count on — My Love for you will never end!

Nothing above us, nothing below us, or anything else in the whole world will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. — Romans 8:39
"A thief comes to steal and kill and destroy. But I came to give life-life in all its fullness." — John 10:10
"I have told you these things so that you can have peace in me. In this world you will have trouble. But be brave! I have defeated the world!" — John 16:33CHAPTER 3
I have a perfect plan for your life.
But sometimes My plan might be different from yours. Sometimes it will involve doing something hard or uncomfortable, such as helping someone very different from you or being a friend to someone who is lonely. At other times My plan for you will include troubles and problems. That's not because I've stopped loving you. It's because I want you to learn to trust Me as we face those troubles together. When you're going through tough times, you need Me more than ever.
When My plan for you is different from what you expected, you can choose to be angry with Me. Or you can choose to trust that I want only what is best for you. Hard days won't last forever. Keep believing and hoping. Then, at just the right time, I will lift you up. Until then, give Me all your worries, and trust that My plan for you is good — because I love you.
