Afraid to Hope

November 28, 2021

Summary

Hope is grounded in possibility…not what we can achieve, but what God can make possible in and through and for us. When Zechariah and Elizabeth were afraid to hope, God delivered on the promise of a child. When Red was afraid to hope, the parole board gave him a new lease on life. When Susie Miller was afraid to hope, she learned to walk again, and then to run. Which is why Susie Miller says she is now a “possibilitarian.” She is an “all in, pedal to the metal, there’s a pony in here somewhere…kind of hoper!”
