“If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.”

John 15:7-11 ESV

So life did not turn out like you planned

You keep holding out for a better hand

What about those stories you have read

Or that movie playing over again in your head

There must be something more to this life

More than disappointments and endless strife

There is one who overwhelms every expectation

Fulfills every hope, the only way to our salvation

One who loves us more than we can imagine

He came to rescue us, the propitiation for our sin

For it is darkness that ensnares, blocking out the light

Keeping us from realizing peace and joy in this life

It is time to relinquish your preconceived notions

There is more than just going through the motions

Give it all to the one who gave everything for you

He will take away every worry by his love so true

There is nothing he would not do to redeem his own

The source of all joy is found in Christ Jesus alone
