Hope. How would you describe hope in your battle with Hep C? Has Hep C clouded your vision of hope? Do you feel like you are walking through a dark valley with Hep C? Have you lost sight of the hope in front of you? Are you holding onto the anchor of God’s hope through the storm?


The first verbal command God gave was, “Let there be light,” and there was light.  God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.” Genesis 1:3-4 NIV


Hope is like light. Where there is light, there is hope. Jesus Christ is our light, our hope, our lighthouse. Fighting Hep C can sometimes be filled with dark days, dark valleys, but hope is still there. God’s light remains even through the darkness. He is always there. For where there is God, there is hope.


“The Light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:5 EVS


Are you looking for His light?  Hope comes along and gives us fresh wind. He breathes new life into our weary souls. Hope and faith in Jesus Christ is greater than anything, even Hepatitis C.


“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” Hebrews 6:19 NIV 


For me, two previous Hep C treatments had not worked. I held onto Christ, my anchor. Darkness engulfed me.  But hope remained. My health got worse and a decision had to be made about a third try in facing down the Hep C giant.  When I couldn’t see in front of me, I held onto Christ’s hope.  He remained steady through it all.


I did not know the future, but I knew the one who held my future in His hands. Roy Lessin says it best, “Your faith in God is your lifeline to His heartbeat; it is the hand that reaches up and takes hold of God’s promises.” Hope and faith, go hand in hand.


“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”  Hebrews 11:1 NIV


As I looked into the light of God’s hope, no matter what the outcome of this battle with Hep C, I was safe in Him.  His hope gave me what I needed in the fight. The battle was won. A cure. Freedom from Hep C.  God did that not me. He brought light into my darkness with Hep C and blessed me with a cure.


If you are walking in darkness, look up, reach out, call out to Christ to bring you light where you’re at with Hep C, but don’t forget to hang onto hope and faith.  Hope and faith never gives up, no matter what.


My prayer for you fellow warriors is this, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13 NIV

    Thank you Hernando, Jose, and Suzanne, you are all my brothers and sister in Christ. My wife drove me back from UCLA. I think I scared the anesthesiologist. He kept on asking me questions for over 30 minutes. I could sense that he was very uncomfortable with all my problems, especially the constant a fib. He decided to use a logical. Well I was awake for the entire vitreoretinAL surgery. He said I would not be in pain, but uncomfortable. I could feel it. The surgeon was great. I think she felt bad for me. If anyone gets this procedure tell them to put you out, in my opinion. I know he was trying to be conservative, but pain is pain. Once again, only by Lord Jesus grace am I here writing out tonight. Back to UCLA tomorrow to change the bandages. Now I look like a real pirate with a metal eye patch for the next month. You all are important to me. I feel sorry for those who do not know are God. There is only one way to heaven The road is very narrow, but one must have faith.as I told the doctors. You are all in my prayers. God bless you all with good health, Richard .

      It is so good to hear from you and what a wonderful wife you have. She is very attentive to you as Mark is to me. Thank you for letting me know how you did. I sure was praying for you. Now, it’s time for some rest and you know our dear Connie is throwing some virtual confetti to you.

      God Bless you.

      In Christ,
