Hold On

Last night I ran across this picture on pinterest and knew that I wanted to post it for today.

I know so many people who have been going through some serious spiritual trials recently.  I know of a few in particular who are really struggling to hold tight to their faith as their world is being shaken. It's so incredibly difficult in times of emotional choas to keep your head on straight. It's hard to still cling to the truth despite all the disappointments and questions in our minds. When our spirit is weak, it's so easy for us to fall away from God, to turn our backs and stop trusting. But weakness isn't a spiritual death senternce, it's a life-line... Because when we are at our weakest, God's grace and power can be revealed in us.

I will boast about a man like that, but I will not boast about myself, except about my weaknesses. But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
-2 Corinthians 12: 5, 9-10

I know of a few individuals who are taking it one day at a time, one step at a time, and for that I couldn't be prouder as a sister in Christ. Keep holding on. Keep pressing forward and looking up.  I know that I don't even know what to pray for most of the time, but I'm believing that God hears the cry of my heart and is working in my situation and in yours.

 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.
-Romans 8:26

  Anyway... I couldn't find an appropriate song for this post last night but my co-worker randomly came up to me this morning and told me about this song and how much she loves it. <3  I think it's perfect. Therefore, I think, it qualifies as the song of the day.

Faith isn't the ability to believe long and far into the misty future.
     It's  simply taking God at His Word and taking the next step.

  1. Love this, love you. Also, your post reminded me of this's supposed to be about a guy talking to a girl, but it can be interpreted as God talking to us too. :-)
