Morning Praises {In Christ Alone}

This morning I was scrolling through Pinterest & saw this pin…

I began humming the song unknowingly & my Gram who was cooking in the kitchen behind me began singing it. I pulled it up on YouTube to listen & my heart was completely filled. Tears filled my eyes as I listened to the words…

In Christ alone my hope is found

He is my light, my strength, my song

This Cornerstone, this solid ground

Firm through the fiercest drought and storm

What heights of love, what depths of peace

When fears are stilled, when strivings cease

My Comforter, my All in All

Here in the love of Christ I stand

What incredible words…strength, solid ground, love, peace, comforter…& that I stand in his love. Wow. This song really encompasses Christ. From his love to his death on the cross to his victory and our hope in him. Since I have been examining my heart & life as I prepare for 2014, this song really took up camp in my heart. I want my life to reflect the words & my heart to believe each lyric in every way. Throughout the next year I pray this song will be lived out in my life. 

Listen to the words. Really listen to them. What do they mean to you?

Frankly my dear…In Christ Alone.

    That song always reminds me of my best friend Kristin's infant son, Noah. We sang it at his funeral. It reminds me that God truly is Who He says He is, even in the darkest times He is there. Noah would have been 7 Dec 14th. We miss him so much. thanks for posting this.
