I love how a piece of art can both simultaneously speak or impact a whole group of people and a single person. I guess that’s one reason it’s beautiful. Scripture does this. Poems do this. Sunrises do this. Pictures do this. Songs do this.
I woke up with “I Have This Hope” playing on repeat this morning. I heard it playing not too long ago too. That’s okay. I guess if the record player gets stuck on a song, I want it stuck (unswervingly) on the reminder of hope. Always.
So I got out of bed, grabbed my cup of coffee, and listened to that song again. I love this video I found on YouTube which accompanies this Tenth Avenue North song.
Not only does it show a cup of liquid manna from heaven but it shows an open locket. I have a locket like that. It’s been passed down to every girl in my family since my great, great grandmother. Other than my mom’s Bible, her locket was the only other thing I wanted to make sure I kept after she passed away 26 years ago.
The picture above is my attempt to be creative and and recreate the YouTube video. 🙂
I have this hope and I can’t imagine life without it.
“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess because He who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:23
Play on record player. Play on.
