The Unpopular Opinion Of Hope

“Sometimes you win some, sometimes you lose some…………

It’s easy to see when there’s nothing to bring me down.

But what will I say, when I’m held to the flame, like I am right now?

I know You’re able, and I know You can, save through the fire with Your mighty hand

But even if You don’t,

My hope is You alone.”

– MercyMe

I’ve listened to this almost repeatedly for days now. Amongst the marital struggles, I face even more new uncertainty with my health, and now, discovering we must move from our home that we were purchasing because of some fluke in the mortgage process, makes it difficult to hold on to that hope.

I say this not for sympathy or pity, (so please don’t even comment on my health or loss please).

The inspiration today is simply given to me by MercyMe, and the lyrics of the song I’ve quoted.

And I thought someone out there might find comfort in the song as well.

I care not if it’s cliche, I know there is a reason all this has come to pass.

God help me, continue to give me hope. No matter what comes my way.

“Even if”…

    I also love the song “We Win” from that same CD. That powerful anthem keeps me going.
