Now for some theology from one of Rihanna's latest songs...
"We found love in a hopeless place."
I am not sure she realises how close she is to the Gospel story. Almost all of the people that went in search of Jesus were feeling hopeless, helpless and desperate. They wanted something and in the end they found Someone - Jesus....who is "Love" personified.
I know that when I encountered Jesus and made my first public commitment to follow Him, I was in a place of hopelessness. I found LOVE in that place and Jesus has never left me.
May you find Jesus in the midst of your 'hopelessness'.
Living in Grace
