MY FAITH GIVES ME HOPE

That is a picture of a scripture that I was reading. It dawned on me that it was a form of hope that I could take a picture of for this project. My faith has been big for me my whole life. I feel like it’s given me hope through a lot of times where I’ve felt like I’ve had nothing. When I’ve struggled a lot, my faith has brought me up when I’m down. In the picture, you can see one of the titles is John the Baptist Testimony. I feel like John the Baptist was a big character in the Bible. Just the whole Bible really gives me hope. I guess another way to say what I mean is I get my hope from the fact that I believe in the Bible. I know not everybody believes in the Bible, but the fact that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, and so I feel that I have hope that one day, whenever I die, I’m going to have eternity in heaven. I was brought up in a home where I was taught the Bible. My mom was a single mom herself. I don’t know. I can’t really explain it. It’s just a feeling that I get, I guess. God gives me strength in my low points.
