Remarkable Hope: When Jesus Revived Hope in Disappointed People by Shauna Letellier

40697467Remarkable Hope: When Jesus Revived Hope in Disappointed People

Rediscover eight people in the Bible whose hopes and expectations went from disappointment to life-changing transformation through Jesus.

Remarkable Hope reveals a pattern of hope where individuals were surprised by Jesus in drastic ways after they placed their hope in him and were--at first--disappointed. Their stories show his work was rarely what they anticipated.


As we observe Christ's faithful commitment to these Biblical characters who hoped in him, we are wowed by his unseen plan. We are comforted by his orchestration of circumstances and revived by his enduring presence. Remarkable Hope helps us gladly declare, like the apostle Paul, that "our hope does not disappoint us."
 

My Thoughts:
At some point or another in our lives, we will all face disappointment, discouragement or loss of hope. How we face it and who we face it with, can be the game changer. Remarkable Hope is the kind of book that I love to read. It points the reader back to scripture.  What does it truly mean to put our hope, faith and trust in the Lord? And when it feels hopeless, is God really listening to our problems? Does He really care? I am in that season of life and I hope to move from it rather quickly, but if I have learned about this season, I have learned He is listening and more than ever, it is the place where I lean into Him deeper and further than before. Not only do I lean into Him, I stay obedient. 
This book offers hope, gives the reader a place to park their fears and lean into the creator, the one who knows you deeply and loves you immeasurably! Grab Remarkable Hope! This is a fantastic book. Thank you to the publisher for providing a copy. A favorable review was not required. #Sponsoredbyfaithwords
