Seeds of Truth: Psalm 39:7

And so, Lord, where do I put my hope? My only hope is in you.

Psalm 39:7, NLT

What do you need hope for? What does it mean that our only hope is in the Lord? How can we live every day with our hope in the Lord? In what other things do we try to put our hope? What happens? How do these things give us false promises? How do we know we can truly entrust our hope to the Lord? What does a life of hope look like?
