These quotations will give you hope and build your faith. Don’t lose Hope. Allow the hope of God to flow into you. God’s hope encourages, motivates, and keeps you on the road to faith, peace, and victory. Hopelessness breeds and creates the ‘feeling‘ of depression.

  1. Hello to all
    In this puzzling time, I love you all
    Rise your one’s nearest and friends

  2. All the quotes help me alot especially building my faith n hope,,, because the more i have hope the more i have confidence to face all kinds of situations that i’m going to come across,,, as well as through hope can make me somebody in the future

  3. Yes trials and tribulations but it could also be as a result of sin too. Sin exposes us to attacks and hinders our relationship with God. As the Faithmechanic advised, it’s better for Skye to search himself and seek God (he’s already loosing his faith et al). . Then he will know how to proceed: maybe ask for forgiveness or be strenghtened to fight the warfare (if trials) till he gets his victory. I pray that Skye’s situation has changed for the better by now.

  4. Hope is a powerful weapon that one can indeed use for when being weak from which one can actually gain strenght

  5. @FaithMechanic, I really love all your comment is giving me courage , Your world make me have Faith and Hope in God because i don’t have anyone even family to help me but with your comment have and when i ready about Job in Bible i know with God everything is possible….

      Yes, everything is possible in HIM. Stay close to Him, read and speak his word. Spend time with Him and He will show you the way out. There is for you a path to victory and He will speak that path to you. Find it through finding and listening to Him. Jesus is the WAY, everybody’s way, and your way.

  6. i have lost my hope many times and iam feeling empty because i don’t feel love is meant for me

  7. I know of Hope. A sense of relieve, that somehow even when all is wrong with your world. There is a chance, for a better tomorrow. When u don’t have much, in fact nothing at all but hope. Seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I know of hope, the strength to carry on when all seems to be lost.

  8. I had hope. I lost my job. I had hope. I lost my savings. I had hope. I lost my home. I had hope. I lost my child. So with no job, no money, a disabled child and no prospects in any form, my hope is starting to fade. Every day I give hope to others with biblical readings and passages, praising the name of God and trying to bring others to repent and follow the Lord. Right now, I just feel fake. Preaching something that I’m believing less and less. Don’t tell me to hold on. Don’t tell me to not give up. Don’t tell me to have faith. I’ve done all of that. I’ve been all of that. Hope won’t pay the bills, get therapy for my child, feed her, or keep a roof over our head. Hope is a 4 letter word and as it seems, nothing more.

      Skye – Hope is crucial but hope is not the only thing one needs to overcome in life. The Bible says that “Faith is the victory.” Faith is the only thing that is guaranteed to move God. Mercy occasionally can move God but faith will always work. That is because faith is the sign that one has met the condition of the word of God in a certain area. Hope can help get you to faith – “Faith is the substance of things hoped for.” And “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the (spoken) word of God.”

      Something is seriously wrong for all those things to happen in your life. Seek God with all you Got. Fast and pray. Find out what is going on. Don’t just go down the road ‘hoping.’ You desperately need to hear from God. Reach down deep, get totally honest, and talk to Him. He can turn things around but He only does it on His terms. Tragedy will not move God, only faith will, and faith comes from Him when we meet the conditions of His promises. You must seek your way out if this.

      1. @FaithMechanic.. Your advice to Skye was awesome and just what I needed also.

      2. Greetings Skye,
        I am curious to know if anything has gotten better by now. You have a right to the way you feel first of all. I can understand how you could feel a hopelessness in light of your situation. I totally get that.

        Although I agree with most of what Faith Mechanic said I do not for a moment think that, “there is something seriously wrong with your life” because these things are happening. Jesus Himself said we will have tribulation in this world but He also said that we can overcome it. In our own strength? That is a laugher. We cannot even breath one breath in our own strength. He is our source for it all. It rains on the just and the unjust so there is nothing seriously wrong with you life. Stuff happens and the Lord did not hide that it would.

        David said, How long oh Lord will you forget me forever? How long will you hide Your face from me? There are many others who felt abandoned by God including Jesus but they came to a better place. Not necessarily the place they expected or wanted but what The Omniscient God and Father of us all determined was best.

        I don’t say this easily as I am in much pain everyday and sometimes something inside me feels crazy because the pressure can be great from it but I truly believe what I am saying and I have not come to these conclusions easily.

        It is nothing you did and I know Faith Mechanic did not mean that. I just want to clarify. Tis grace that brought me safe thus far and grace will lead me home.

        1. I enjoyed reading this this morning I know god is real
          I been going thru some things seems like I couldn’t get out
          but you encouraged me the only way out is to trust god
          turn it all over to him and seek his face
          get in his word daily ;
          thanks for encouraging me

    2. Skye! Remember Job in the Bible. Our Hope should be on our Lord Jesus Christ, He can not fail, friends, parent, brothers or sisters can fail but God does not. God will change your situation in Jesus Name. Please dont loose HOPE !
