Hope and Healing
in the Aftermath of
Rebellion Against God

How do people survive when they
have no hope?
Where do they turn
when there's nothing
but misery all around them?
In whom do you put your trust and hope?
The only true hope
Christians have is in the Lord.
Study Lamentations
and get a glimpse
of the God
whose compassions never fail.
