The last couple of years at Easter time, I have posted something that I found particularly encouraging so that I would be able to look back and find it again when I am feeling less hopeful and not encouraged. While I am usually pretty strong and pretty confident, even I get discouraged sometimes. It's nice to have reminders in place that there is something and someone stronger than myself, who cares about me.
Two years ago, I posted the lyrics to a contemporary hymn that is one of my favorites, and that never fails to speak to my heart. For me, this song says it all as to why and how I can have a firm foundation of hope and confidence in the midst of struggles.
I'm going to share those lyrics again, but I'm also sharing a music file of the song, for those who might want to download it. This rendition is by Margaret Becker, Maire Brennan and Joanne Hogg, from the album they did together called In Christ Alone.
In Christ Alone My Hope is Found
May all of you -- (((((my friends))))) -- have a restful and encouraging weekend in whatever you do and wherever you go; and if the warm spring sun doesn't shine where you are, may it at least feel like it is shining! ;-)
