HOPE NOW...

My girls Bethany & Erin are leaving for Kenya very soon. The prayers we have prayed since last summer are being answered. The support they need to live amongst the poor in Mathare for a year is coming in and their hearts are full of love and anticipation.

And Mama Z. has been crying a lot lately, well, practically every day, at the thought of letting them go. They are going for all the right reasons and I fully believe God has called them back to Kenya with the purpose of enhancing the Child Sponsorship program of CMF International.

Other than our United Pursuit Band lyrics, this song by Addison Road gives me hope and peace when I need it most. When I am crying out and fearful, everything comes down to love. And everything, including wanting God to use my girls in a beautiful way, rides on hope. Selah.
If everything comes down to love
Then just what am I afraid of
When I call out Your name
Something inside awakes in my soul
How quickly I forget I'm Yours

(PRE-CHORUS)
I'm not my own
I've been carried by You
All my life

(CHORUS)
Everything rides on hope now
Everything rides on faith somehow
When the world has broken me down
Your love sets me free

When my life is like a storm
Rising waters all I want is the shore
You say I'll be ok and
Make it through the rain
You are my shelter from the storm

(CHORUS)
Everything rides on hope now
Everything rides on faith somehow

When the world has broken me down
Your love sets me free

I am not my own
I've been carried by you all my life

(CHORUS)
Everything rides on hope now
Everything rides on faith somehow
When the world has broken me down
Your love sets me free
(Repeat 2x)

(CHORUS 2)
You've become my hearts desire
I will sing Your praises higher
Cause Your love sets me free
Your love sets me free
Your love sets me free

I love the line "your love sets me free." Simple and true.
