(ASCAP)/ i Tree Publishing Co. Inc. (BMI)/Greenberg Music (BMI)/ Sony Music Publishing/Warner Active Songs Inc. (ASCAP) Do you have the keys to the house of love? Amy Grant describes such a dwelling in her new hit, "House of Love." Offthe CD by the same name, the disc blends her background of Christian rock with today's pop sound. The song encourages us to look for hope, even when things appear to be going poorly. In the song's words, "Life is funny," for you can "think you're in your darkest hour when the lights are coming on in the house of love." Ms. Grant applies this belief to a relationship. The person in the song thinks it's over. In her fear about what seems to be happening, she fails to see that "when something this strong gets ahold of you, the odds are 99 to one it's got ahold of him too." The song doesn't give us the basis for this hopeful assessment. Yet it often is true that hope continues to shine even when life's hurt tends to block out its light. Ms. Grant offers helpful advice for keeping hope alive. When the house is dark, and you're all alone in- side, "you gotta listen to your heart." Unfortunately, fear is likely to be present at the same time, proclaiming its message about how bad everything will be. Consequently, learning to tune out the fear of the mind so as to listen to the wisdom of the ,,:! heart requires effort and discipline. One of the best ways to do this is to Prayerful attitude. Bring your fear guide you beyond the can better hear the wisdom of hope. Hope is built by maintaining the vision you want in life. Sometimes though, you the essence of the dream -- a dream filled in a form you may not yet know. , For example, perhaps you hope for lasting !q and eventual marriage. Perhaps, too, the] now love does not love love" may go out in a certain dating z This development doesn't mean your wrong. It just means you must be patient, this past relationship and go on with hope. Fear might try to say that if you are n0tV particular individual all of love ever, what you have learned in this past actualIy is preparing you for a much deeper another. Indeed, the pain of rejection and can dim your hope. Yet God's love for each energy source, keeping the light of hope even in life's darkest times. Ask God to help you make each day a dwell in the "house of love." (Your comments are always address: Charlie Martin, RR 3, Box port, IN 47635.)
