Day 4: Hold On


Why does GOD make it so easy that it is so hard?

Is it because it is FREE~

PEACE in the midst of anxiety

"that transcends all understanding" (Philippians 4:7)

HOPE in the midst of doubt~

“If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes" (Mark 9:23).

JOY in the midst of despair~

"Rejoice always and delight in your faith;

be unceasing and persistent in prayer;

in every situation [no matter what the circumstances]

be thankful & continually give thanks to GOD;

for this is the will of GOD for you

in CHRIST JESUS" (I Thessalonians 5:16-18 AMP)

Why does GOD make it so easy that it is so hard?

Or do we make it so hard?

Is it because we still BELIEVE we can do it on our own?

Oh I was pushed against a wall yesterday when my feelings got the best of me.

I wanted them to go away yet they stayed.

I cried out to GOD~

and nothing.

I cried out to HIS SON~

and nothing.

Where was GOD? Where was JESUS?

Oh THEY were there with me

just waiting for the perfect time to do what only they could do.

I knew that I couldn't do anything in my own power to

change the circumstances that would change those feelings.

It is a dark place when you are doing what GOD asks you to do,

yet all you hear is silence.

Hopelessness and helplessness strives to get the best of you,

when you feel like you are getting the silent treatment.

Even though

you know the TRUTH and the TRUTH has set you FREE,

you find yourself at the end of yourself.

But then it happens, or should I say

GOD happens.

All of a sudden HE does it.

Something in you changes as you are transformed.

You can't explain it, because it is not of yourself.

Does GOD wait for complete SURRENDER of yourself?

Does HE wait for that one moment when HE knows your heart so well

and that you are in total agreement that HE is GOD & you are not?

Well I BELIEVE yes, as HE has taken me there so many times

to the end of myself

with utter DEPENDANCE on HIM

that I had to wait in the silence,

yet BELIEVING

GOD HAS THIS.

And lo and behold,

it was SUPERNATURAL,

as that is GOD.

PEACE has overwhelmed me beyond my comprehension

as it is not of myself.

HE went beyond my wildest dreams,

and HE didn't even fix the issue.

Well actually HE did fix the issue

because the issue was my heart

as that is where all issues begin and start.

Changing your heart in the midst of non changing circumstances is

FREEDOM~

from the inside out.

Hang on. Hold Tight.

When you feel like there is no where else to turn~

HE IS THERE.

When you feel like you can't get out of your feelings~

HE IS THERE.

When you feel like HE isn't THERE~

HE IS THERE

to choose

HIM

in the midst of anxiety

in the midst of doubt

in the midst of despair.

HIS PEACE~ FREE!

HIS HOPE~FREE!

HIS JOY~FREE!

YOU~ FREE!

Oh

Just because

HOPE feels lost.

PEACE turns to anxiety.

JOY is a distant memory.

Hold on. Hang tight

to HIM

Totally DEPENDENT on HIM

even if your feelings aren't there

because HE IS THERE.

Oh the FREEDOM to

"JUST BE HELD" (listen to the song below)
