Inspired by Romans 15:13, during this week we’ll draw closer to the God of hope, and be reminded what it is to be filled with a unique joy and peace as we trust in Him. There will be time to reflect on those challenges in our lives, or the church, that can undermine our ability to trust God. From a place of honesty, we will seek the restorative power of the Holy Spirit, so that we might return to our everyday lives or ministry truly overflowing with hope.
