Looking for a daily dose of encouragement? A boost to keep you spiritually charged? Hope Abounds is designed for you Written in an easy-going conversational style, Paul Corts draws the reader into an inviting personal hypothetical dialogue as he transparently shares from a storehouse of life experiences - the good and the not so good - to help you focus on the bright hope of the future. The author's travels throughout the United States and around the world add a dose of real life to these devotions, drawing on a rich collection of experiences and conversations with people from broadly varied backgrounds and highly diverse cultures. Each one-page daily meditation begins with a specific Bible passage accompanied by a meditational thought to encourage your own thoughtful reflection and spur you on to a life full of hope.
Read the meditations in the morning to help center your thoughts and prepare you for a productive, hopeful day. Or, read the meditations in the evening to bring closure on the day's events and point toward the bright hope of a fresh new day on the morrow. Using seasons, holidays, historical events, and biblical topics for themes, the author invites you to walk with him through a yearlong series of widely divergent daily conversations. As Corts shares openly from his own personal experiences, readers are prompted to recall their own personal experiences, ponder on them, and extract meaning for life application. The interplay between author and reader will encourage you to explore how to capture - and embrace - the joy, hope, and optimism that are at the core of the Christian faith.
