“Above all powers above all kings
Above all nature and all created things
Above all wisdom and all the ways of man
You were here before the world began.”
By Lenny LeBlanc and Paul Baloche
On those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.
"Praise be to the LORD, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses. May the LORD our God be with us as he was with our ancestors; may he never leave us or forsake us. May he turn our hearts to him, to walk in obedience to him and keep the commands, decrees and laws he gave our ancestors
1 Kings 8:54-58 NIV

"Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise, and the winds beat against that house, it won't collapse because it is built on bedrock."
"Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise."
~Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
Allow hope for a brighter day to be a motivating force in your darkest moments. Remind yourself that the sun will rise tomorrow and that we have the opportunity to celebrate the new beginning that each day brings. Each new sunrise brings hope.
