2/12 – Tejas – Jesus, You Keep Hope Alive

Well, today is another day I choose to sit in the dining hall to catch up on work. I have the music playing, and the the lyrics from "You Keep Hope Alive" by Mandisa are ringing true. "Days may be darkest, but your light is greater." John 8:12 says, "When Jesus...
