Life has Strains but Hope Remains

To the cross He was led
Where His blood was shed
But a better day ahead
When raised from the dead.

Life has its strains
But hope remains
Since God does care,
There is repair.

From high up in space
Or in a low place,
His care does reach
And His Word does teach.

Even in a hard time,
Things will work out fine
So maintain the hope 
And keep things in scope.

Cheer up my friend
And have a great weekend
For there is much to do;
Much to look forward to.

Thought – During difficulties, always have hope because God has promised better days ahead. Cheer up because the Creator will help you step ahead. Even beyond life on earth, He has a lofty palace reserved just for you.

Music – Even in hard times, hope remains because He reigns and we can have joy because of the inspiration we gain in the events around Easter. Throughout life, there will be difficulty but hope remains in front of us just as in this video: Hope in Front of Me – Danny Gokey.

  1. Greetings. Great message to wait for the hope of Resurrection Sunday. Love this:

    “Even in a hard time,
    Things will work out fine
    So maintain the hope
    And keep things in scope.”

    Shalom!
