Rose Publishing Gaining a Hopeful Spirit Pamphlet

Sometimes, finding hope in a tough situation is easier said than done. Gaining a Hopeful Spirit challenges us to receive hope from the Lord. When life leaves us desolate and foggy, the Lord wants to pick us back up and show us how hopeful we really can be. Joni Eareckson Tada offers hope to people struggling with health and emotional challenges. As a woman who has been through a tragic accident that left her quadriplegic, she can speak first-hand about the challenges that will keep you from living a life of full potential. After reading this pamphlet, you'll be able to help pass on the hope to friends and family members experiencing hopeless times.

My least favorite promise in the Bible is when Jesus says, “In this world you will have trouble...” (John 16:33) During Jesus’ sermon on the mount, we see this trouble comes on a daily basis when Jesus instructs those listening (and us!) not to worry about tomorrow. Why? Because “Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Those who believe in Jesus are not immune from trouble. In Psalm 34:19 the first half of the verse promises, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous…” I see this truth illustrated every week in my ladies Bible study group when we share prayer requests. Whether you and I are feeling weary from an ongoing trial, discouraged that the news rarely has a happy story to report, or disappointed by the way things have turned out, without hope, we will continue to feel this way.
In her encouraging pamphlet, Gaining a Hopeful Spirit, Joni Eareckson Tada shows how anyone can have hope even “when all hope seems gone.” Having gone through an enormous trial herself since 1967 when a diving accident left her a quadriplegic in a wheelchair, Joni knows first-hand how important hope is and how discouraging life can be without it.
Through this 18-page pamphlet, Joni offers hope to anyone feeling discouraged, disappointed, etc. by comforting those with the comfort she has been given. (2 Cor. 1:4) In addition, she equips readers so that they can pass on hope to someone who is despairing.
Any Christian would benefit from this pamphlet because we all experience trials and can fall into discouragement. Or despite our daily trials, we’re not discouraged, but know someone who is and don’t know what quite to say to give that person hope. Whether we are the one feeling discouraged, or we know someone who is, this pamphlet offers that much needed hope.
