Unleashing Hope  \\  Jun 16, 2014

The topic for this final week of the amazing Unleashing Hope Series is how to “Play A Great Defense”. When discouragement, bitterness, resentment and anxiety enter, hope exits every time. This week is designed to help us let go of the things that are wrecking our inner life and destroying our relationships. “Hope Quotient” author Ray Johnston uses a great story in today’s Devo as an example of how to LET GO of the things (and people!) that are keeping us from a healthy spiritual and emotional life connected to God.
