My Hope in Jesus Song Story

‘My Hope in Jesus’ is based on Philippians 4:6-7:

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

I was inspired to write the song after seeing a television testimony of a couple who are pastors in our church. The couple [Ps Tarry and Lisa] had experienced much heartache and pain as they lost one of their children through a still-birth; a painful situation for any parent. However, what inspired me the most was their courage in placing an unwavering faith in God in the midst of such a painful situation, and through this faith, they received a peace that surpassed all understanding that carried them through the storm.

The aim for ‘My Hope in Jesus’ was to write a song that directly ministers to those experiencing painful trials and tribulations, and expresses the truth of how we can place our hope in Jesus; our provider of strength, peace and rest. No matter what trial or situation we face, we can know without a shadow of a doubt that God is for us, He loves us and that He intends only good for our lives. As we place our hope in Him and let our requests be made known to Him, He promises to provide us with a peace surpassing all understanding to carry us through the situation. Not only that, God promises us an eternal life with Him where there is no pain, sickness or death, an eternity of intimacy with the Father. Our King is coming back again!
