I receive a lot of fan mail from around the world, but the other day I received a letter that touched my heart in an especially deep way.  Here is an excerpt:

Thanks so much Scott for being the biggest gift of God ever through your story of hope, faith, and love.  You are a wonder to behold.  Thanks for teaching the world what it means to hold on to the hope of God, even through the tough times in one’s life.

The truth is, even in the most difficult times of my life, even when I couldn’t see my way, I never let go of hope.  I recently wrote a song called “I Am Hope,” available as a new bonus track on my CD Heartstrings from Walmart.com.  If you’ve ever felt hopeless, afraid, or completely defeated in life, I want you to hear this song.  I pray it will encourage you to never give up.

“I Am Hope” by Scott MacIntyre

When day is swallowed up in night
When you can barely see the light
Look for me
When all your strength of heart is gone
When you are barely holding on
Reach for me
In every time when you’re in need

I am hope
You can find me
On the way to every story’s happy ending
You don’t know
How to make it through the pain
But you won’t give up while you still know my name
I am hope

When you get caught up in the rush
Broken, bruised, and out of touch
Cling to me
When all your bridges burn away
When there is nothing left to say
Pray for me
When you can’t find your victory

I am hope
You can find me
On the way to every story’s happy ending
You don’t know
How to make it through the pain
But you won’t give up while you still know my name
I am hope

Don’t ever settle for defeat
Just hold your head up and believe
As long as you are breathing
There is hope

I am hope
You can find me
On the way to every story’s happy ending
Even though
Fear itself stood in the way
You made it through because you knew my name
I am hope
