My Hope Is In You

My hope is in you Lord
All the day long
I won't be shaken by
Drought or storm
The peace that passes understanding
Is my song 
and I sing
My hope is in you Lord

(Aaron Shust, "My Hope Is In You") 

This is the chorus for a song that I loved the moment I heard it when it was recently released.  It spoke to me in so many ways . . . and I realized, yet again, that the reason it spoke so strongly to my spirit and my soul and my mind, is because it is pretty much entirely based in scripture!  I love songs like that, because when I fall in love with the song and know it's ministering to my spirit, I can sing it over and over and over and listen to it and memorize it and feel the words strengthen and encourage my troubled heart . . . and know, without a doubt, that I am indeed feeding on the Word of God!  How could you go wrong there?

It seems the majority of this song is based upon the Psalms, one of my absolute favorite books in the Bible, because it ALWAYS speaks to me . . . no matter how happy or sad I am, how despondent I may feel or how grateful and at peace I find myself, the Psalms really is an applicable-to-all-situations-book.  Do you think so?  Check out this song on Aaron's site for free: And if nothing else, most definitely read the passage below . . . because I can say with all confidence, that it will not go into your spirit to return void, as God promises His Word never goes out to return void!  May you find your hope is in the One who will never fail you . . . never leave you . . . never forsake you . . . do not hope in man, but hope in GOD.

Truly my soul finds rest in God;
   my salvation comes from him.

 Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
   he is my fortress, I will never be shaken. 

Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
   my hope comes from him.

 Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
   he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.

 My salvation and my honor depend on God[c];
   he is my mighty rock, my refuge.

Trust in him at all times, you people;
   pour out your hearts to him,
   for God is our refuge. 

Psalms 62:1-2, 5-8
