My husband played me a music video on you tube the other night, of Lady Antebellum song; “Hello World”, the video and lyrics had me in tears! Not that it takes much for me to cry but they really get the message across in this song. I thought I would include an excerpt from the song:
“Well, hello world, how you been?
Good to see you, my old friend
Sometimes I feel cold as steel
Broken like I’m never gonna to heal
I see a little light, a little grace, a little faith unfurl”
I guess that for many people this is how we lead our lives, feeling “cold as Steel”, whether it be financial circumstances, health issues, relationship problem, we all have some baggage. This is when we need to keep the hope alive, no matter how hopeless it all seems. It is trying to look beyond your circumstances and knowing that there is a plan and a purpose for your life.
To quote a verse from the bible that high lights what faith is; “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Heb 11:1. Faith is the substance of what we hope for and without hope there can be no substance to our existence. Therefore even though you do not know the outcome or understand the circumstances, if you have faith and hold on to “Hope”, you can come out the other side stronger.
“Hope is faith holding out its hand in the dark.” ~George Iles
