A Call to Hope by Samuel Guzman

My son wrote this piece in light of so much happening recently in our world. I thought it fit well here at the Hope Blog.

hope1Since posting the essay, Human Life International’s Truth and Charity Forum has picked up Samuel’s piece. You can read it here.

    What a timely piece for me. You spoke what is exactly on my heart. I so despair at the increasing darkness and can often lose hope. I need to remind myself that my hope is in the Living Christ.

    The fruit does not fall far from the tree. He obviously got your gift of communication. God is using him mightily. You should be proud of his willingness to serve God so wholeheartedly.

    In Him,

    Becky and Jean’s statements echo my thoughts. Thank you Sam for caring enough to communicate the Lord’s hope … “Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my help and my God.” AND thank you Ingrid for the HOPE blog. There is a reason why many are drawn to the precious postings … they direct us to the God of HOPE.

    “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written,

    “For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
    we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”

    No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
