My hope is built on nothing less

1
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus Christ, my righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
  On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
  All other ground is sinking sand.
2
When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.
3
His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.
4
When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found;
In Him, my righteousness, alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

From my own personal life I found out and know that Christ is the solid rock and all other ground is sinking sand, and are things of nothing according to the word of God AMEN. So my hope is built upon the solid rock of God.

I woke up this morning, and could hear myself repeating the chorus line.. of the song My hope is built on Nothing else... 'all other ground is sinking sand'.

I was wondering why this lines pops up for me..

I believe this line was meant for me to really put my trust in Him as my rock in whatever I do today. Literally it means other than God Himself, all other things and areas are sinking sand awaiting to swallow me..

Thank You God.. That reminds me of Psalms 91..He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the almighty......

Mother will fail you, father will fail you, brother and sisters will fail you, wife will fail you, husband will fail you and even friends will fail, only Jesus Christ can never fail you. On Christ the solid rock I stand.
