**Edit** Thanks for the comments. They are great verses! If you still have more, please, keep posting them! They will be a great encouragement to my friend (and already have been to me!).**
I'm working on a project for a friend, and I am collecting Bible verses that have to do with hope and encouragement. I then thought that I would see what you all might come up with, so please, share any verses that have to do with hope or encouragement or one that you just really like!
