Where I Put My Hope

I’m realizing that my tendency is to put my hope in Ben’s upcoming doctor appointment in New York, rather than putting my hope in God.

“Maybe this next treatment will work.”  “Maybe this doctor will understand things better.”  “Maybe this doctor will be our Savior.”

But we already have a Savior, and we our told to put our hope in His finished work, not in the things of man.

Please pray that next week’s appointment will yield some promising results.  But pray even more that we would put our hope in a wise and sovereign God and not in a distinguished doctor or new drug.  We do hope for treatment and cure.  But ultimately, we hope and pray for a sustaining faith regardless of the outcome of this doctor’s visit.

My Hope is Built

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.

Refrain:  On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.

His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood.
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my Hope and Stay.

When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh may I then in Him be found.
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
