HOPE

vc012716

Are there places in your life that you find you are battling a lack of hope?  You are not alone, however, not one of us can live without hope and there is honestly no excuse for those of us who know Jesus to live without hope.

Today I would like to ask you to read, listen and meditate upon the words to a song God put on my heart this morning, “My Hope is Built on Nothing Less”.   According to an article I read by Richard Neil Donovan, this song was written by a young man named Edward Mote.  Edward was a trained carpenter who loved to worship Jesus.  I believe as you take the time to embrace these words and worship the Lord our God, you fill be filled with hope – hope built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.

My Hope is Built on Nothing Less
by Edward Mote, 1797-1874
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

His oath, His covenant, and blood
Support me in the whelming flood;
When every earthly prop gives way,
He then is all my Hope and Stay.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found,
Clothed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne!
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

Blessings,
