Hopeless or Hope?

It’s possible that following the General Election result in the UK that you are feeling despondent today?

A few weeks ago I produced this design for a prayer card that we are going to circulate to the homes around our church.

The wording on the back says.

We live in a world that can feel confusing and
sad but we believe that God can change things.

I think that I needed to hear these words this morning and perhaps you do as well?

As Christians we can just despair when things seem go wrong or we can cry out to God in faith calling on him to continue to be at work in the midst of the hurt, confusion and disappointment?

Which will it be?

I’m praying for our country today.

Hi, my name is Graeme and I’m married to a very patient wife. We have 4 children, 2 rabbits, a terrapin (and not a lot of peace and quiet!). I’m a Regional Minister for the Eastern Baptist Association in the UK (the views expressed in this blog are my own) and I am especially interested in making Church accessible to people who have no church background and also in how we disciple people in order to equip them to live out their faith in the 21st Century.
