Hope, Grace & Truth
My mother’s answer to my childhood fears usually came as a question: “It’s not really that bad, Valerie. What’s the worst thing that could happen?”
After I disclosed the worst-case scenario, she’d provide solutions and assure me that even the worst “isn’t the end of the world.”
Until I buried my best friend at age 21 and it was the end of my world as I’d known it.
We live in a world broken by sin, so life is like that sometimes. But I’ve learned that even when the worst really is that bad, we still have hope in Jesus.Yet, there is always good news even in the seemingly gloomy times. Always. Because God is good – all the time. – Paris Renae Click To Tweet
We love hearing about the hope, but it comes with a caveat. Did you catch it? Hope in Jesus. The realization of that hope for today, tomorrow, and for eternity depends on you accepting Jesus as your savior.
Similar to just about every post she writes, today’s featured post by Paris Renae left me speechless.
Does it feel like your world will never be the same? Is your worst-case-scenario a real possibility? Then join me in reading “If We Will…” for hope beyond this temporary home called Earth. Hope in an eternity with Jesus.

Let’s Talk About Jesus…
We are putting together an anthology that’s all about putting our faith into words.
Oh, how sad to lose your best friend at 21. 🙁
I’m so grateful that even when the worst does happen, we can still hope in Jesus. I’ve found that to be true in my own life as well. I didn’t think I would ever recover after our child died just an hour after birth. But Jesus wouldn’t let go of me until eventually my joy returned. It took a long while and a lot of tears (and I’m still not “over it” per se) but I did finally learn to trust again in God’s faithful goodness.
I’m so sorry to hear of your tragic loss, Lisa. I’m not sure anyone can ever really “get over” something like that, but it’s wonderful that you were wise enough to submit to Jesus so He could give you that peace beyond understanding to then share with others. Thanks for visiting and commenting!
