Our hope is not built on earthly victories

Though we experience many earthly defeats; yet we persevere.

Though we suffer many afflictions and persecutions; yet we do not despair.

We are but strengthened by earthly trails and made resolute in our determination to walk with God when we see others turn from the faith and fall away.

The more we hear others deny God; the more we testify of Him.

The darker the darkness becomes; the brighter our light of truth shall shine.

Our hope is not built on earthly victories, wealth or power; our hope is built on nothing less than the sure foundation of the certainty of Jesus Christ's coming again and gathering us into the everlasting Kingdom.
