With Hope

I went running this morning, and put my iPod Nano on "shuffle". Out of like thousands of songs, this one came on.... "With Hope" by Steven Curtis Chapman, from the album "Speechless" This is not at all how We thought it was supposed to be We had so many plans for you We had so many dreams And now you've gone away And left us with the memories of your smile And nothing we can say And nothing we can do Can take away the pain The pain of losing you, but ... We can cry with hope We can say goodbye with hope 'Cause we know our goodbye is not the end, oh no And we can grieve with hope 'Cause we believe with hope (There's a place by God's grace) There's a place where we'll see your face again We'll see your face again And never have I known Anything so hard to understand And never have I questioned more The wisdom of God's plan But through the cloud of tears I see the Father's smile and say well done And I imagine you Where you wanted most to be Seeing all your dreams come true 'Cause now you're home And now you're free, and ... We have this hope as an anchor 'Cause we believe that everything God promised us is true, so ... We wait with hope And we ache with hope We hold on with hope We let go with hope I had totally forgotten I had this song. It seemed totally new to me. I used to love Steven Curtis Chapman. I listened to the song and cried all the way home. But at the same time believe that it was a special comfort from God to me as well.
