Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Held

Six months ago we had a choice. We could either operate in faith or in fear. Even if you stand with only one tiny seed of faith you will learn that God is bigger than our fears, anger, pain, sorrow.

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10

No matter how much you throw at Him or lay at His feet, He loves you through it all. His promise has never been that we will not have trials or suffering. His promise is to meet us in the middle of it all. Our prayer landed in Gethsemane. And when He met us not only did He hold us, many times He carried us.

Breathing deep I let go and He catches me. For this is His promise, when everything crashes down, He will be there to hold us. We ran to Him for refuge and experienced His provision in the wilderness...

"The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms." Deuteronomy 33:27


"This is what it means to be held
How it feels,
When the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive..."
