Hopelifter


Spent my Christmas afternoon buying gifts and baking stuff at the mall, alone. I went in to a bookstore straight to the Christian section and this book caught my attention. I was hesitant to buy given that I still have a lot pending books to read but scanning through some of the pages, I thought this is beautiful and I will need it.

See, I have been through a lot this 2015. I've felt really hopeless until God reminded me of the great hope I have in Him. And in this time of recovery from depression, some people struggling to find hope again went to me unexpectedly. Slowly my desire to be a vessel of hope to others who experience what I did and what I still do deepens.

I feel indescribable joy to help lift others up and point them back to the source of Hope. I know in my heart that God calls me to be a "Hopelifter". And so I pray that with God's help, I will be. And I also hope that this book will somehow equip the hopelifter part of me.
