Melissa provides incredible insights into God’s plan for our lives. She reminds us that in a world that is too demanding, too difficult, too confusing – there is always hope when we allow God to lead us. I love how she explains the significance of recognizing that we need to raise the ‘white flag’ and surrender to God so He can work within us. We must allow God to work through us when we walk through the fires of disappointment, grief, illness, and pain. In today’s world, outside influences plague us daily but when we focus on God rather than the world and our problems, our hope is rekindled and grows beyond our wildest expectations. When we truly desire a closer walk with God, we must focus on daily Bible reading, meditation on God’s Word, and prayer. Then we will begin to experience grace, hope, and peace. Staying close to God in our daily walk is the answer for hope in today’s world. Dare to Hope today and experience God’s greatness!
