When we were considering possible names for our ministry five years ago, we immediately landed on the word “hope.” As survivors of addiction and trauma, Beth and I came to embrace hope as the fundamental key to our future. We have come to believe that, no matter the past, and despite all the pain, always – There’s Still Hope.
We are standing on solid ground.
In his article, “The Power of Hope,” Dr. Dale Archer wrote, “The power of hope defines the psychological survivor.”
The Bible uses the word “hope” 244 times. Here is just one example: “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you” (Ephesians 1:18).
Recovery Step: Do you have setbacks, struggles, and stains? Sure you do. But you also have something stronger than all of that. It’s called “hope.” Embrace that hope now.
