Hope

I have so many things going through my mind today. I want to share my small world here with everyone. I want people to understand that what appears to be a boring existence is truly a rewarding life. I want people to know the love I feel for life and for my Savior. All that being said, I just heard this. It caused me to "be still and know" that there is but one reason. I am posting the lyrics for others to meditate on with me:

"Every Man" by Casting Crowns:

I'm the man with all I've ever wanted
All the toys and playing games
I am the one who pours your coffee,
corner booth each Saturday

I am your daughter's favorite teacher
I am the leader of the band
I sit behind you in the bleachers
I am every man

I'm the coach of every winning team
and still a loser in my mind
I am the soldier in the airport
facing giants one more time

I am the woman shamed and haunted
by the cry of unborn life
I'm every broken man, nervous child, lonely wife

Is there hope for every man
A solid place where we can stand
In this dry and weary land
Is there hope for every man
Is there love that never dies
Is there peace in troubled times
Someone help me understand

Is there hope for every man
Seems there's just so many roads to travel,
it's hard to tell where they will lead
My life is scarred and my dreams unraveled

Now I'm scared to take the leap
If I could find someone to follow
who knows my pain and feels the weight
The uncertainty of my tomorrow,
the guilt and pain of yesterday

There is hope for every man
A solid place where we can stand
In this dry and weary land
There is hope for every man

There is Love that never dies
There is peace in troubled times
Will we help them understand?
Jesus is hope for every man
