hope has come
Problems in life can go on for so long that we forget the time they didn’t exist.
It can feel so completely overwhelming but what do we do? Sometimes we build a tough exterior.
We seem okay to everyone around us but we know inside that we could fall apart at any time.
While He was on earth, Jesus knew every pain we could ever go through and much more.
The Bible says that He was despised, rejected and misunderstood and went though absolute agony at the cross.
Isaiah 53:4 (YLT) says: “Surely our sicknesses he has borne, And our pains -- he hath carried them...” .
He knows how we feel and has the power to do something about it!
To every life a little rain must fall
But now and then a flood destroys it all
Your fragile hope is fading like the sun
The darkest part is just before the dawn
There’s a light in your darkness
A joy in your pain
There is One who can give you inner peace
When you fall down or lose your way
Just remember that there’s a Saviour…
Hope has come
And no one knows, your closest friends can’t tell
Your smile is forced, you cover up so well
You camouflage the cracks that start to show
You feel so numb but that is all you know
But there is One whose greater than the pain
And there is One who died and rose again!
Hope! Hope! Hope has come!
