In this life, surely each of us has experienced at least one.
Yes, some can be resurrected by the grace of God, but others pass away forever. When that happens, precious hopes and plans are severed from our lives—like a tree cut off at the trunk.
Regardless of the losses you have experienced, there is a God of hope Who can cause new growth, new limbs, and new fruitfulness to arise from barrenness and brokenness. At the “scent of hope,” new life can spring forth from what looks like a dried out, lifeless stump. And with it, comes renewed joy and purpose.
May God bless you as you read The Scent of Hope.
