Hope Reinvented

September 11, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on an unspecified date at 6:00pm

Denise will be the keynote speaker for a revival at White Hill Church of the Brethren. In a world that seems hopeless, our hope stands firm when it is in Christ alone.

Hope – an anchor for the soul, is often hooked on temporal things. Continually on a quest for this yearning within us, our soul’s hunger for the moment our hopes are realized. But what really is hope and what happens when the hopes we have died? We are taught to dream and hope, but not taught how to hope. Seems like an obvious, automatic human behavior, but this world’s idea of hope is not to hope at all. We tend to fill our hopes with lesser things that perish; misplaced goals that are anchored in the comfort and happiness of this world.

When our hope is unfulfilled or crushed,  we can become disillusioned and may try to resolve this pain with coping mechanisms or by striving to attain on our own the hope we desire. We can blame God and feel entitled to the hope we thought we had. We might even try to placate this deep unmet longing within us and numb ourselves to
the painful reality that we have lost our hope or maybe we never really ha dit in the first place. God has so much more in mind for us.

What if our idea of hope that has been handed down to us is in the wrong place? What if our desire for a perfect, happy life leaves our faith in a vulnerable state in this fallen world? Sometimes the life WE had planned is interrupted by tragic circumstances that leave us broken and hopeless. This is where Hope Reinvented is a healing balm to those afflicted with a seemingly hopeless life.

When life hurts, we need real answers that help to heal our broken hope.  God ’s word supplies the answers, which are not just a simple answer of self-denial. God wants to bless us and restore a hope to us – His hope. It is deeper and more satisfying than our hope ever could be and it does not require “faking our faith” to try and cover our hurt.

Finding hope during suffering is not just about coping, but about reinventing our idea of hope and navigating through disillusionment, by way of a grief process to find real hope in God’s sovereignty and character
