Holding On...

James 1:2-4
"Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing."

James 1:16-18
"Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures."

1 Corinthians 2:9
"But, as it is written,
'What no eye has seen, nor ear heard,
nor the heart of man imagined,
what God has prepared for those who love him'"

Psalm 119:73
"Those who fear you shall see me and rejoice,
because I have hoped in your word."

Jeremiah 29:11
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare[a] and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."

I hold fast to these truths...through the good days and the bad(or really really bad, like yesterday).

And on rough days, these truths are about all I have- they keep me going, they encourage me from day to day. And right now...about all I'm doing is holding on to God and His word.


P.S. Be extremely thankful I didn't unload my life on would have been here for hours and left distressed.
