The lyrics above are from one of my favorite bands – The Shelly Moore Band. They played at my church in college a lot and the words in her music will stop you dead in your tracks. And that’s what happened on Saturday as I was running. In my quest to explore and discover what it truly means to be grateful this year, I have been led to investigate my hope as well. It has me asking, “What is it that I put my hope in?” Truly. Do I put my hope in my family? In my career? Do I depend on these things to offer a glimmer of hope in my life when things aren’t looking so great? When I have a horrible day at school and I leave with some hope that tomorrow will be more manageable. But why do I hope for a better day? What has given me the privilege to look to a more promising tomorrow? Jesus. It is because of Him that I am able to hope. Hope for the future and trust that He is faithful. So today, I put my hope in Him. He is the only one that will never fail me, never leave me, and love me unconditionally. He is where I lay my hope to rest.
