1 Peter 1:1-3
V3 …According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
Sometimes life’s just hard. Sometimes it hurts. Sometimes it makes us cry. Sometimes it makes us mad even, and sometimes we want to scream so loud because the pain just hurts so much. Yet, through it all we can KNOW that God is leading us down these paths for our sakes; that even on the other side of the worst moments of our lives we will be better, maybe not good but better. I am comforted to know that I have a “living hope” I love that phrasing; “Living” it means to me that it is there. It is real. It can’t be taken away on the whim of a painful situation. We can KNOW that through it all we have hope because we have HIM.
