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. 🙂
