Hold Fast!

As we go through trials and tests, God brings songs to mind. Here are the lyrics to the one on my heart tonight. You can hear it here, if you prefer.


Hold Fast
(MercyMe)

To everyone who's hurting
To those who've had enough
To all the undeserving
That should cover all of us
Please do not let go
I promise there is hope

Hold fast
Help is on the way
Hold fast
He's come to save the day
What I've learned in my life
One thing greater than my strife
Is His grasp
So hold fast

Will this season ever pass?
Can we stop this ride?
Will we see the sun at last?
Or could this be our lot in life?
Please do not let go
I promise you there's hope

Hold fast
Help is on the way
Hold fast
He's come to save the day
What I've learned in my life
One thing greater than my strife
Is Your grasp
So hold fast

You may think you're all alone
And there's no way that anyone could know
What you're going through
But if you only hear one thing
Just understand that we are all the same
Searching for the truth
The truth of what we're soon to face
Unless someone comes to take our place
Is there anyone?
All we want is to be free
Free from our captivity, Lord
Here He comes

Hold fast
Help is on the way
Hold fast
He's come to save the day
What I've learned in my life
One thing greater than my strife
Is Your grasp
So hold fast

I know that what you and Jake are going through right now is tough, but hopefully this rough patch will be over soon. I wish that I could help in some way other than prayer but that is all I have to give at this time. I know that song it is very beautiful and very much the best advise. What I did through Dwayne's illness is think "Ok, today all I want to do is get through today." I tried really hard not to think of tomorrow and what it might bring, I just focused on today and let tomorrow take care of itself. I heard a song that says, "Tonight, I will find a way to get by without you, I will make it through tonight." That is how I keep my sanity. All I have to do is get through tonight. That is my daily mantra. I know it doesn't sound like much but that is my focus and it helped me. I hope it helps you and Jake in some way. I hope that he gets better soon. Love you both, Tina
