Sometimes I feel like giving up.
Sometimes my heart goes to sleep—and I forget…

There is Hope

Sometimes I just have to sit and be—me in front of Him.
Sometimes I have to remember who He is—before I can know who I am.
Sometimes I have to push away from my stuff, put my pen down—and listen.

Maybe you do too.

Listen in to the anthem of Hope. It’s for me, but I have a feeling it’s for you too.

HOPE'S ANTHEM by Wlliam Matthews

He's awakening the hope in me
By calling forth my destiny

He's breathing life
Into my soul

I will thirst for
Him and Him alone

He has come like the rain
That showers on the barren plain

So my heart and tongue confess
Jesus, Christ the Hope of man

My hope is in you, God
I am steadfast
I will not be moved

I'm anchored, never shaken
All my hope is in You

He's bringing hope to the hopeless
And giving His heart to the broken

And sharing His home with the orphan
He is the joy, He is my joy

He is the hope of the nations
The Father's heart we're embracing

He is the song we're declaring
He is the joy, He is my joy


  1. I will thirst for Him and Him alone! Sometimes I/we mistakenly look to others. He alone is our Hope!

  2. "Sometimes I have to remember who His is-before I can know who I am".

    Sigh. HOPE is who He is and what He has to give.

    Love it.

  3. Yes, Stephanie, that's the powerful sentence that spoke to my heart, too! Thanks, Laura.
