Have you ever been looking for a sign, to give you hope in the darkest times?

What does the Bible say?

A reminder that God takes care of the birds in the air and he will take care of us too. Hope is everywhere 🙏🏼
I haven’t spoken to this dear friend of mine in years, and just when I needed a word from God, she gave it to me.
Thank you Jesus for your great signs of Hope, letting us know that everything will work out in Jesus name, Amen 🙏🏼
