In the midst of it all there is hope.

I was reminded of that truth once again listening to david bailey sing tonight.  If you haven’t heard his music – and maybe even more than his music, his message of hope – then at the very least check out his website.  I’ve heard him sing more times than I can count and am amazed each time by how God grabs me in some way and says “remember this, Kerri?”  Tonight it was this song that did it to me:

The message of hope never grows old
It’s the heat of the fire that drives out the cold
It’s the rhythm of time that beats like a drum
It’s where you are going and where you are from

The message of hope never grows old
Sweeter than honey, more precious than gold
It’s the song of the bird on her very first flight
It’s the light of the moon in the middle of night

The message of hope never grows old
It’s the greatest story that ever was told
It’s the green in the grass and the blue in the sky
It’s the reason we have the courage to try

The message of hope never grows old
It makes the weak strong and turns the meek bold
Simple as sun, a joy to behold
The message of hope never grows old

The message of hope never grows old
It’s the way that the world was meant to unfold
As long as you’ll listen, I promise to sing
Hope never dies, let it ring, let it ring,
let it ring, let it ring…..

Thanks david, for bearing hope for me…
