Hope Now

Many of you who really know me, know that God uses music to speak to me. Every season of my life has a theme song. If my life were a TV show, this song would be the theme song at the beginining of it.

This season the song is Hope Now by Addison Road. Every lyric is my heart's cry. I hope you can be blessed by this song as I have been.

If everything comes down to love
Then just what am I afraid of
When I call out Your name
Something inside awakes in my soul
How quickly I forget I'm Yours

I'm not my own
I've been carried by You
All my life

Everything rides on hope now
Everything rides on 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

You've become my hearts desire
I will sing Your praises higher
Cause Your love sets me free
Your love sets me free
Your love sets me free

Happy NEW Year!

I love this day. A NEW year, NEW beginnings and NEW resolutions that change the core of who I am for the better!

Some of my favorite scriptures that reflect on the NEWNESS of a NEW life:

"Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22,23

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!"
2 Corintians 5:17

"We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life." Romans 6:4

"to be made new in the attitude of your minds and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness." Ephesians 4:23-25

May this year be the year to be made NEW in Christ, to better your life, and the world around you...2010 IS THE YEAR!
