hope now

So I have 12 blog posts that need finishing up from the last 12 days. That won't happen tonight, but soon. I've been busy with lots of photo shoots, oohing and aahing over a friend's sweet baby boy, orders from Bitter Berry Boutique, tagging 3,456 items for the local children's clothing consignment sale (of course that's an exaggeration but it feels pretty close!), and just every day life.

This I wanted to jot down though. And since it's complete, I can click the publish post button that's been neglected as of late when I finish.

Sometimes our local Christian Radio station can be a little (OK, a lot) repetitive and play some pretty cheesy stuff. Still, I find myself listening to it more times then not when I want to listen to something other than Silly Songs with Dr. Jean or Chicka Chicka Boom Boom read by Ray Charles (which are both pretty entertaining!) that Madelyn adores.

Today, though I was in need of a break from them. I turned on the radio and I heard this song for probably the 42nd time, but really listened to the lyrics for the first time.

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 am 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

And when my life is like a storm
Rising waters all I want is the shore
You say I'll be OK
Make it through the rain
You are my shelter from the storm

Everything rides on hope now
Everything rides on faith somehow
When the world has broken me down
Your love sets me free

I am 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

Everything rides on hope now
Everything rides on faith somehow
When the world has broken me down
Your love sets me free

You've become my hearts desires
I will sing Your praises higher

Your love sets me free
Your love sets me free
Your love sets me free

-Hope Now by Addison Road

Just what I needed to hear today. How quickly I forget that He's carried me all my life.
