Hope


          When you care about someone and their faith so much, you feel inspired to take action if they don’t know God.  As much as you want to lay Christianity out in front of them and let them go from there, it isn’t that simple.  Being a Christian isn’t going to church and doing all the right things.  Being a Christian is having a close relationship with God and meaning it from your heart.  Even though you feel like you should take action and get involved with that missing piece in their life, the only person that can fully develop that relationship with Christ is them.  You can’t do it for them.  However, you can be the spark that sets the fire going.  You have to be careful not to shove Christianity in their face because it could scare them away from Christianity altogether.  The main thing to keep in mind is that there is hope.  God is the God of the universe, and even if there are rough spots right now, greater things are yet to come.  Hope is a big part.  Knowing that God has a plan for them is a special thing to keep in mind.  With God, ALL things are possible!

  2. There is a spot in everyone's heart for God and no one but GOD can fill that hole.
