It takes faith to have hope. And faith is based on fact. Facts about God and who He is and what He does. If you know the true facts about Him and believe them, then you can have hope. Hope for healing -mind, body and spirit. Don't mistake hope in research or technology or people for hope in Him. He IS good; He IS Love; He IS sovereign; He IS all powerful.... His timetable is quite different than ours though. So for those of you who belong to Him: You can rest assured that He will hear your prayer and He will answer.
There's that word "rest" again!
