In 1834, Edward Mote wrote the lyrics to one of the most encouraging and influential hymns of all time, “My Hope is Built on Nothing Less.”

“My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and 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.”

As I reflect on the construction of the chapel at the Lodestar Mountain Inn, this hymn is at the forefront of my mind. What started as a firm foundation of cement has now become a beautiful wooden chapel overlooking this awesome piece of the Lord’s artisanship! However, the foundation for the Lodestar Mountain Inn was created long before any of us ever had knowledge that we would be blessed with this opportunity.

The Lodestar Mountain Inn will be a place of refuge and restoration – holy ground where people can get away from the waves and storms of life and have a real experience with the Lord of all creation, a calming shelter during those times of great need.

Will you join me in praying for the progress of this project? Will you begin to pray for all of those who will seek and find healing at the inn? Finally, will you ask God, “What will You have me do to help complete this vital ministry?”

I am excited for what the Lord has in store!

Expecting great things,
