There are many causes of hopelessness. The most common is placing our confidence on things that can fail: money, health, beauty, and status. Painful circumstances can cause us to lose hope in God's will, but our hope in God should not be based on other people or circumstances. God wants to work out His purposes for you and ultimately give you peace that passes all understanding. In Hope: The Anchor of Your Soul you'll learn what all of the unreliable anchors are, and how to place your hope in the only anchor that will never fail.
