My Inspirational Statement
The song i have written called “Dear Creation,” is about how all creation fell when man fell. We are not the only ones that will be made new, all we see will be made new. Knowing that all of creation suffers, that it also waits, just as we wait to be made new. This song instills hope in all, not just humans, but all that fell from the garden. We have to have hope. I referenced a lot of Romans 8:18-25.
These lyrics put it plain and simple of what the passage is talking about. Although, what i was challenged with was the word “Hope” in verse 24. I couldn't quite understand what “Hope” was. Flipping back a few chapters, you can find in Romans 5:2 that it talks of “rejoicing in the Hope of the Lord.” Now to dig a bit deeper, the word “Hope” in our dictionary doesn't contain any solid trust. This word “Hope” that is presented is that Hope is secure in Christ because He makes it secure.
So having this hope that is in the Lord is such a beautiful thing. It contains Faith, Patience, Trust, Unquestionable Love, and summing up to Hope.
We have secure Hope through Christ that all things will be new.
