Scripture(s): Genesis 45:4-8 (NIV)
Everyone needs hope. Without it we tend to fade away and give up. In a world with so many disappointments, injustice, fear, loss and pain we more than ever need to be convinced there is still hope. In this series, Hope Rising, will awaken the hope God has for us in Christ, leaving you confident and comfort that the future is in God’s hands. There’s no better time to kick of this series than Easter Sunday when it seemed all was lost, in Jesus we see Hope Rising. What do you do when life takes twists and turns and goes to places you don’t want to go or ends up where you never thought it would be?
We’re all dealt a hand in life… that’s just how it is in life. Some of the “cards” in life are good and some not so good. So, how can you find hope – in the midst of disappointment. This week we’re going to look at the life of Joseph as an example to find Hope Rising When You’re Not Happy With the Hand You’re Dealt.
