He has given us new birth into a living hope

We have future and a hope

"For I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD.
"They are plans for good and not for disaster,
to give you a future and a hope."
-- Jeremiah 29:11, NLT
Looking forward to what lies ahead
"No, dear brothers and sisters, I am still not all I should be,
but I am focusing all my energies on this one thing:
Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead,
I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God,
through Christ Jesus,
is calling us up to heaven."
 -- Philippians 3:13-14, NLT

His mercies begin afresh each day
"The unfailing love of the LORD never ends!
By his mercies we have been kept from complete destruction.
Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each day.
I say to myself, "The LORD is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!" -- Lamentations 3:22-24, NASB
New birth into a living hope
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!
In his great mercy
He has given us new birth into a living hope
through the resurrection of Jesus Christ
from the dead."
-- 1Peter 1:3, NIV
All things have become new
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation;
old things have passed away;
behold, all things have become new." 
-- Corinthians 5:17, NKJV
