It may be easy to, at times, feel hopeless. This is because our hopelessness stems from a desire for earthly treasures; wealth, companionship, the latest gadgets, and fulfillment of what WE think we need and when we need it. "God [however] is called 'the God of Hope.' This means He is the source of all real hope. If we are going to have hope (confident expectation), it must come from Him for He alone has the power to give it."
