365 Devotions for Hope
We need hope at all times, especially when life is rough or we feel God is not answering our prayers.
There's good news. Signs and words of hope are all around us. That's good because we need hope to move forward, especially during struggles and loss. Hope is the expectation of something good.Word pictures of images, uplifting quotes, and glimpses into God's love will inspire readers to embrace life. For example, in examining the scripture of Christ as our anchor, devotions explore various anchors (plow, mushroom, claw, and fluke) as well as moorings and other nautical analogies to discover more about hope in God.
What are some of the signs of hope around us?

Walking in Grace, a new Bible study from First Place 4 Health, will help participants understand their significance to God so that they can experience His freedom, live the abundant life and extend grace to others! Each First Place 4 Health Bible study contains 12 weeks of daily study to help members put Christ in first place.
