never leave you nor forsake you. What you see as broken is your 
illusion of hope. When you hope in a future event or a person then you 
are placing your hope somewhere else other than in Me. It is only when 
you hope in Me that you will know your true destiny.

firm in the hope that I am who I say I am. You will not falter.

Sometimes I ask that you die to your understanding of what hope is, so 
that I can give you a hope that will not perish. A hope that is 
everlasting and eternal and will fulfill My purposes in your life.

Hope springs from My wells of living water. Come to Me and I will have
