Hope bubbles over. Yep. Think of when you make pasta.  You start with cold water and put it on the stove.  I have a gas stove, so the fire goes on.  And watch and wait until the water boils.  The water wouldn’t boil without the flame.  Then you add some pasta and if you don’t lower the flame the water boils over right?  Those bubbles are HOPE.

Up, Up, Up, and over.

And isn’t it funny that the water has to boil before hope can bubble?

Only when it’s hot do those bubbles of Hope multiply.

God is a God of Hope – not despair.

He is a God of possibilities – not impossibilities.

He is a God of life, revival and renewal – not death.
