Unleashing Hope  \\  May 12, 2014

Passage: Revelation

Pastor Ray uses the book of Revelation to open up Week Three of our Unleashing Hope series today by encouraging us to ”Refocus On The Future”. Nobody moves forward well when they’re looking back. So how do you finally let go of the past and catch a fresh vision from God for your future? Not by looking back or looking around, but by looking FORWARD, because of the incredible things that God has planned for your future! What gives us real strength during tough times and discouraging circumstances? Looking FORWARD to our ultimate victory in Jesus!
