DANNY GOKEY: HOPE IN FRONT OF ME

You may think that little has changed since my last post… still a pandemic around our planet… still problems in most places… still pain in many people… still panic in some hearts.

Where is hope? Today this is an important question to ask. It may be even more important to answer this question.

Danny Gokey saw the answer through eyes of faith. He expressed it musically and shared it in a song. Listen to “Hope in Front of Me” as often as needed and be blessed by his answer.

HOPE IN FRONT OF ME

“I’ve been running through rain
That I thought would never end
Trying to make it on faith
In a struggle against the wind.
I’ve seen the dark and the broken places,
But I know in my soul
No matter how bad it gets
I’ll be alright.

There’s hope in front of me.
There’s a light, I still see it.
There’s a hand still holding me
Even when I don’t believe it.
I might be down, but I’m not dead.
There’s better days still up ahead.
Even after all I’ve seen,
There’s hope in front of me.
There’s a place at the end of the storm.

You finally find
Where the hurt and the tears and the pain All fall behind.

You open up your eyes and up ahead
There’s a big sun shining.
Right then and there you realize
You’ll be alright.

There’s hope in front of me.
There’s a light; I still see it.
There’s a hand still holding me
Even when I don’t believe it.
I might be down, but I’m not dead.
There’s better days still up ahead.
Even after all I’ve seen,
There’s hope in front of me.

There’s a hope still burning.
I can feel it rising through the night,
And my world’s still turning.
I can feel Your love here by my side.

You’re my Hope.
You’re the light; I still see it.
Your hands are holding me.
Even when I don’t believe it
I’ve got to believe.
I still have hope.

YOU ARE MY HOPE.”

(Danny Gokey)

I am thankful for Gokey’s song and for his many others, too. I am thankful for faith to know the One Who is Gokey’s hope and my own as well.

Regardless of temporary darkness in this world, I am not hopeless. I know I am blessed. Christ’s light burns eternal, His grace is sufficient, His peace sustains, and His love never fails.

Where is hope? His HOPE is right in front of me.

 

Sometimes we don’t discover our purpose until the darkest moments strip us of everything, and all we are left with is brokenness and heartache. It is in these moments, ironically, when hope becomes our strength and carries us.”  (Danny Gokey)

“In peace I will both lie down and sleep for You alone, O LORD, make me to dwell in safety.”  (Psalm 4:8)
