God, Our Hope

I have been listening to Rush Limbaugh today, and he was very good at explaining what is happening today. So many people were calling in and talking about hope. I believe that we, as Christians, need to get busy and spread the good news that GOD IS OUR HOPE!

1Timothy 1:1 Paul, An apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope;

I am posting again what I posted last year on hope.

Little Hope by Dona Gelsinger

I often used to set scripture to music. I hope the following song I wrote and scripture on hope will be an encouragement to others.

Psalm 42:11
Psalm 43: 3,4

Click here for the music.

Why art thou cast down, O my soul, O my soul?
And why art thou disquieted within me?
Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise Him,
Who is the health of my countenance and my God, and my God.
O send out thy light and thy truth,
Then will I go to the altar of God, unto God, my exceeding joy.

I listened to Rush today also. If you do not mind, I would like to copy these scriptures and keep them.

Our hope is not in any man. It is like you say, our hope is in the Lord.

Cheryl, I certainly don't mind if you copy them.

Blessings Cathy, How very true your words & such a compilation of wonderful scriptures of HOPE! Like the ones that Dodi Osteen has on healing...we all need to get busy and share HOPE, Faith & LOVE by sharing salvation in Jesus with others... so they too may hold on to our HOPE!

Beautiful melody & words well done by putting the scripture into music! It makes scripture easier to memorize when it's put to music!
