6. There Is Always Hope! What If My Friends/Family Turn Their Back on God?
Show Notes

Ladies, do you know someone who has recently walked away from the Lord? A friend or maybe a family member or even someone famous that you’ve heard of? I want you to know that there is always hope.

In today’s episode we talk about someone who did just that. They decided to walk away from God. Not only did they decide to walk away from God, but they also decided to go all in with the world and it about destroyed them. But…with God, there is always hope.

Zechariah 9:12 tells us, and this is God speaking, “Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope. Even today I declare that I will restore double to you."

That word stronghold is talking about a pattern of thinking. In this case it's talking about a pattern of thinking that has become negative. 

The word hope we use a lot to mean, "wishing for something," but true Bible hope means to expect good things. Expect it, because it IS coming! 

So, we can think about this verse like this, "“Change your pattern of thinking from thinking the worst about this person...that they are never going to come back to God and start expecting it! 

Do not let anything move you from that hope!

Ladies, there is hope! 

I am so thankful to God that He didn’t give up on me...that He sent someone like you into my life to invite me to church where I was able to hear the Good News of Jesus for the first time. 

I am so thankful that my friend didn’t give up on me. I encourage you, don’t give up hope for your friends or family members who have turned their backs on God.

In this week's episode, we talk about a story in the Bible that most of you have probably heard before, however we are going to see that it's more than just a story about a prodigal son, but it is also a story of hope!
