Paul's Sentiment

We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life. Indeed, in our hearts we felt the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our] behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many.
- 2 Corinthians 1:8-11

So many people know about the season I am in that there must be many (I hope) who have prayed for me. I love sharing how God blesses me so others can praise God with me. Paul's sentiment in 2 Corinthians reminds me where my hope is and why I trust Him.
