grow, mature

My hope is in...

This part of the sermon really struck me yesterday:

"Is [your] hope big enough for the trials that you're facing? You know, we can have small hopes that kind of see us along through easy days and minor trials, but then trials come along that are so big that they slay those hopes and we find we need a bigger hope. Friend, what's your hope today? ... God will tenaciously reveal where your hope is by the circumstances of life. Oh friends, be good students of your own heart, your own hope. Find where that hope is. Put your hope in Christ."
