Sometimes life just isn’t what we thought it would be. Whether it is the loss of a job, an unexpected diagnosis, a wayward child, or even the never-ending negativity of the nightly news, sometimes you just feel like giving up. But what can you do?
It may seem to easy, but the answer is simple – and it starts with hope.

Each chapter also contains meditations that allow you to:
You can get through any trouble, rise above every disappointment, and reenter life. “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Spirit” (Rom. 15:13).

Years ago when I read the first version of The Power of Hope (Tell Your Heart to Beat Again), I received such revelation and inspiration on that one small but powerful word: hope. Dutch’s new, revised book carries even more! Through the stories and teachings in the book Dutch has given us the tools to choose hope. No matter what life brings to us, we can recalibrate our hearts and set ourselves on a course to trust God, receive, and walk in hope.

In recent years I have experienced many deep wounds and setbacks – as a person, as a pastor, and as a preacher of God’s Word. In this increasingly negative world dreams are dashed, hope deferred, and relationships are often strained and broken. As a result, I often have secretly yearned for personal, spiritual encouragement. Recently just one of the illustrative stories and chapters in this book brought deep healing and encouragement to my soul. Dutch Sheets has penned his greatest masterpiece in this book. Destined to be a Christian classic, The Power of Hope will speak to every believer’s heart.
