The Reason For My Hope by Billy Graham

Billy Graham
ISBN: 9780529105448
Publisher's Synopsis:
The saving message of the Gospel is the heartbeat of this preacher and evangelist. Millions around the world have heard Billy Graham proclaim this unchanging truth. He has never forgotten the transformation of his own life, when he first said yes to God’s gift of salvation, and he has witnessed multitudes turn their hearts to the God of Hope.
 "Hope is a Gift.
Have you ever taken hold of such a prize that leads you out of uncertainty into profound assurance?
When it arrives, despair departs.
An old Scottish proverb says,
'Were it not for hope, the heart would break.'
What is your heart's condition?"
MrsK's Review:
Did you watch this special? Did you discover a new truth? When the opportunity for me to review the book, well I knew that our Lord was asking me to journey deeper into my relationship with Him.

This man's voice resonates deep within. Just his name brings back all of those moments in front of our television. A gathering "snuggled together" listening to what inspiration might feed us for the next few moments... the next few months... the next season. In the introduction, Billy Graham, reminds us that you can "glimpse the glow of hope" simply by lighting a match and burning a candle:
"You will discover that the whisper of its flame brings life to a room,
making the candle useful.
Is your flame alive and making a difference in the world?"

Have I been "nourishing" my soul enough that a flame burns within? Can others see the "glow of hope" in my actions or with my words? If "Hope pierces the darkness," if  "Hope brings comfort," then what am I showing all of you? 

Rescued for Something: What would your story be? With a series of short testimonies about survival from circumstances, physical defeats, or mental anguish there is a "Hope" that comes from being saved.
"For with the Lord there is mercy,
And with Him is abundant redemption."
Psalm 130:7

Hope. What are you searching for? What are you needing? Have you done all that you could do, yet still feel empty or unfulfilled? Is the way of this world spiraling to a point that you can't decipher what is truth? If so... there is hope!   
 "His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
great is His faithfulness."
Lamentations 3:22-23
Beautifully written, this book will help your spirit soar, 
"The message of this book is my hope for you.
And my prayer is that you will be filled with the dividends of joy and peace
in believing that you can be rescued from all that hinders,
bringing you into a 'Living Hope of Salvation."
Billy Graham
