And it Feels Like it Might Be Hope

This song came to my mind a few minutes ago and now it will be in my head all day long. It’s my go to song for trying to find the “good” in things. Several years ago when I was living in Joplin, Missouri and my hubby was living near Tulsa, Oklahoma, well frankly….it got old. We lived that way for nearly a year, but I had a house to sell and he had a job to do. This song came on the radio on my way to work one morning. I was still singing it in my head when I received the phone call that said, “Your house just sold.”

Hope. In illness, in an unsettled world, in unemployment, in broken relationships, in financial hardship, in mental battles, in loss, in LIFE….Look out the window.xmas 007

It Might Be Hope

By Sara Groves

you do your work the best that you can
you put one foot in front of the other
life comes in waves and makes its demands
you hold on as well as you’re able

you’ve been here for a long long time

hope has a way of turning its face to you
just when you least expect it
you walk in a room
you look out a window
and something there leaves you breathless
you say to yourself
it’s been a while since i felt this
but it feels like it might be hope

it’s hard to recall what blew out the flame
it’s been dark here since you can remember
you talk it all through to find it a name
as days go on by without number

you’ve been here for a long long time

hope has a way of turning its face to you
just when you least expect it
you walk in a room
you look out a window
and something there leaves you breathless
you say to yourself
it’s been a while since i felt this
but it feels like it might be hope

  1. You are always so uplifting and inspiring, Paula. I love you and am happy to call you my friend.

    • Thank you so much, Maddie ♥ When someone comes to my mind….I always think it’s God’s way of telling me to pray for them….so when a song pops into my head….I just figure it should be shared. Cause, maybe, someone else needs it, too? Much love, my friend ~

  2. Great song… thanks for introducing me to it!

  3. Without hope there’s only despair. Got to hang onto hope.

  7. Hope – are you familiar with writings of Victor Frankl on this subject?If not worth a look-see in my opinion.
