When Hope Is Lost
." . . all hope . . . was then taken away" (Acts 27:20). Even Christians can lose hope. We may smile and pretend it isn't so, but the best of believers can descend into despair. Elijah did. David did. Paul did. People familiar with God's power can come to doubt God's provision. You may be at that place today. If so, you don't have to remain mired in misery. God will lift you to a life of joy. You can help him do it. This book shows you how. "When Hope Is Lost" identifies dangers to dodge and principles to pursue. Its twelve chapters stand on one encouraging truth: The God who created everything from nothing can deposit hope into your heart again. Ron Lewis P.O. Box 182 Parkersburg, W.Va. 26102

Page 161 - And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow ; they toil not, neither do they spin : and yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
