Stories of Hope

I find stories so inspiring. Sometimes we think we are the only ones who struggle, the only ones who have blown it, the only ones still in the middle of the mess. I think that stories remind us that there are others who have seen the faithfulness of Jesus and that there is hope. I remember when my husband and I were trying to pay off debt I would read story after story of those who had paid off enormous amounts of money. These stories motivated me not to give up, to keep trying. My hope is that these stories will inspire you, motivate you and remind you to look to the God who is pursuing you in great love. I asked the people who have written these testimonies to write about how God’s work in their life had transformed them, not how Hannah is awesome or how they have made it to the top. God is not finished in their lives, but they want to show you where He has brought them thus far. I hope that you will be encouraged.
