Holding on Tightly
I hold on even though the wind of resistance presses hard against my grip.
HOPE calls out to me … Hold on tightly.
Doubt tempts me to loosen my grasp.
HOPE quietly reminds me… God is faithful.
Discouragement threatens to steal my joy.
HOPE embraces my heart … His joy becomes my strength.
The enemy of my soul speaks lies to bring fear.
HOPE removes all fear …. My faith is built on the truth of God’s unfailing promises.
“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we say we have, for God can be trusted to keep His promise.”
Holding on to hope is a daily choice we all have to make. Oddly, I’ve discovered that holding on tightly to hope can only be accomplished by letting go.
I hold on by letting go.
I let go of my own strength and understanding and I cling to the unfailing love of God and trust Him.
