Hold Me Tight

I thought the storm was dying down, but apparently, I was wrong;

When I thought things are starting to get back to normal;

Here comes another storm that completely took me by surprise;

And is now annoyingly lingering with no plans to leave my territory soon.


I certainly didn’t see it coming, but I believe You did;

You could have prevented it from happening, but You chose not to intervene;

What I least expected to happen didn’t take You by surprise, I believe;

So I’m choosing to trust You and Your promises of peace, comfort, and grace.


From where I am standing now, all I see are wounds, pains, and tears;

A place badly beaten by life’s blows and uncomfortable twists and turns;

On my own I would not be able to stand another day to endure the storm;

So I’m trusting You that You’ve got my back, now and evermore.


With the strength I have left, I’m not sure how long I can keep holding on;

With all the blows and hits I’ve endured, I’m not sure if I could stand another raging storm;

So please hold me tight and never let go of my weak and weary hands;

Draw me closer to Your side no matter how many storms would try to stop me from moving forward.


In my despair, I’m choosing to hold on to Your faithfulness and unrelenting love.

    1. Ikr? Sometimes they come all at once.

      “It’ll get better. It should get better,” says a friend. And I do hope it does. And I’m choosing to believe it will. 🙂
