My hope

In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here in the love of Christ I stand

Sometimes I try to find my hope in other things or people. But when it comes right down to it, Jesus is where my hope is found. Who else can stand through the fiercest drought, or the fiercest storm? Who else has a never ending amount of love and peace? Who else can cause my fears to disappear and cause my strivings to end?

As much as I desire a husband and child(ren), as much as I value my family and friendships, as much as I love my dear puppy: not one of these people (or animals) can do for me what Christ does! He is my everything, my all in all.
