Hope Now

Thank you so much for all the prayers you have been lifting up on my behalf! I was so blessed by the loving words I received from many of you Sunday evening. I want to share with you where I am at right now spiritually … I listened to this song by Addison Road last night and I bawled. This is where my heart is:

Everything rides on hope now
Everything rides faith somehow
When the world has broken me down
Your love sets me free
When my life is like a storm
Rising waters all I want is the shore
You say I’ll be ok and
Make it through the rain
You are my shelter from the storm
I’m not my own
I’ve been carried by You
All my life
Everything rides on hope now
Everything rides faith somehow
When the world has broken me down
Your love sets me free
You’ve become my heart’s desire
I will sing Your praises higher
Cause Your love sets me free
Your love sets me free
Everything rides on hope and faith in my life right now. But, shouldn’t that how it always is? Shouldn’t it always rest on hope and faith? God has spent the last 36 hours reminding me of all the blessings he has poured out on me this year. He has truly showered me with His love. Being reminded of that has set me free – free from my exhaustion and self pity (I can really be a ninny sometimes) and free from any trials I may be facing. Thank you for the love and prayers!! You’re wonderful sisters (and brothers) in the faith!

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