God Is Holding You!

First off, I want to begin by saying "Thank You" to all of you who prayed for my friend Karen and her family who I wrote about in my Day Six post. Karen died peacefully yesterday. Please continue to pray for Karen's family and friends as they grieve her loss. "Whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lords"

Secondly, I opened up my Timehop this morning and came across a video my dear friend Sarah shared with me when I was going through a difficult time in my life with my mom and the illness. I decided to click on the video link again this morning. These words are so powerful and I hear them speaking to so many of you who are struggling. The video is called "Arms that Hold the Universe/Promise of A Lifetime."  This verse from the song really caught me this morning: "I know it seems that this could be the darkest day you've known, but believe you me the God of strength will never let you go" as well as this verse: "The Arms that hold the Universe are holding you tonight."

Yep, my dear friends and readers, God is holding you today...holding you in the midst of your joy, but especially in the midst of your sorrow. God is holding you in the midst of the light, but most especially in the midst of the darkness. And when it seems your world is falling apart, God is holding you most especially there too!!! "I know it seems that this could be the darkest day you've known, but believe you me, the God of strength will never let you go!"

I think I will leave it at that for today. Have a blessed Sunday friends!!

  1. I am so sorry for your loss and will be praying for your friend's family and friends. Even though we know, as believers, that we will be reunited, the missing in the here and now is hard.

  3. I am so sorry for your loss, my friend. (((hugs))) I know that God does hold us in the hard times, but lately that is difficult for me to feel and everything I've been through (and am still going through) makes it all the harder to believe at times. God bless you, sweet friend!
