My Hope is Built on nothing Else

This past Sunday my father Pastor Paul and Rachel Knowles (high school student) sang a special, My Hope by Paul Baloche. They sang it beautifully. Part way through the song I started crying. Partly because Rachel is moving away but mostly because of the lyrics. The lyrics to this song stayed with me all day. Just look at the first couple lines of the song: 

Nothing will change, If all the plans I make are wrong, Your love stays the same”

And also the first couple lines of the chorus.

I don’t know where you’ll take me, But I know You’re always good. My hope is built on nothing else, Than Your great love, Your righteousness”

God’s love towards us will never change even if we turn away. He loves us through it all. I need to remember that no matter what happens that God is always good, no matter where he takes me. I need to keep holding on and lean on him through all the of trials and through the happy times.

Throughout the whole song the lyrics grab you and make you think about how you are living your life. What you need to change? What is God presently doing in my life? How do I live a life that is pleasing to him? These are questions that I ask myself often. A way to start is looking to the scriptures. What is God saying to us?

Thank you Dad & Rachel for singing this song on Sunday and thank you to Paul Baloche for writing it.

Please take time to hear what God is saying in this song.


Nothing will change
Your light will guide me through it all, I’m hangin’ on
I’m leaning in, to You
Nothing can reach,
The end of all Your faithfulness
Your grace is with me,
Through every shadow, every test
I’m hangin’ on
I’m leaning in, to You


I don’t know where you’ll take me
But I know You’re always good


My hope is built on nothing else,
Than Your great love, Your righteousness
I will not walk another way
I trust Your heart, I trust Your name
I’m holdin’ on
I’m holdin’ on, to You


You are my rock
When storms are raging all along,
You shelter me, God
I’m safe with you on solid ground,
I’m hangin’ on
I’m leaning in, to You


I don’t know where you’ll take me
But I know You’re always good


My hope is built on nothing else,
Than Your great love, Your righteousness
I will not walk another way
I trust Your heart, I trust Your name
I’m holdin’ on
I’m holdin’ on, to You


My hope is built on nothing else,
Than Your great love, Your righteousness
I will not walk another way
I trust Your heart, I trust Your name
I’m holdin’ on
I’m holdin’ on, to You
I’m holdin’ on
I’m holdin’ on to You
I’m holdin’ on
I’m holdin’ on to You
I’m holdin’ on
I’m holdin’ on to You
I’m holdin’ on
I’m holdin’ on to You
I’m holdin’ on
I’m holdin’ on to You
I’m holdin’ on
I’m holdin’ on to You
I’m holdin’ on
I’m holdin’ on to You
I’m holdin’ on
I’m holdin’ on to You
I’m holdin’ on to You (holdin’ on to you)


My hope is built on nothing else,
Than Your great love, Your righteousness
I will not walk another way
I trust Your heart, I trust Your name

If all the plans I make are wrong, Your love stays the same
