You will waste being very ill if you choose to grieve as others which have no hope.  This study looks at what this hope is, and how your understanding of it can inspire you to be a witness amidst your illness or events in your life that you no longer think you can handle.  Understanding the Blessed hope, to the believer, diminishes things on Earth and puts your hardships in perspective, so that even when it seems you have nothing left, you can still praise God for what He has in store for you.
