Exasperation

Week 27, 3 days: Exasperation

It has been a crazy week. Far beyond just the regular ol’ #FullTiltBoogie. Like, “carry my CBD oil in my purse” kind of crazy. I had an image flash in my head today that sums up how it has felt; like I’m carrying an armload of water balloons and trying not to drop any of them. But along with that image came a message:
“Hold Fast”
The song by Mercy Me says, “hold fast, help is on the way.” Here are the lyrics and link to video


To everyone who’s hurting
To those who’ve had enough
To all the undeserving
That should cover all of us
Please do not let go
I promise there is hope

Hold fast
Help is on the way
Hold fast
He’s come to save the day
What I’ve learned in my life
One thing greater than my strife
Is His grasp
So hold fast

Will this season ever pass?
Can we stop this ride?
Will we see the sun at last?
Or could this be our lot in life?
Please do not let go
I promise you there’s hope

Hold fast
Help is on the way
Hold fast
He’s come to save the day
What I’ve learned in my life
One thing greater than my strife
Is Your grasp
So hold fast

You may think you’re all alone
And there’s no way that anyone could know
What you’re going through
But if you only hear one thing
Just understand…


Then the reminder of 2 Corinthians 4:8…
“We are pressed on all sides, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;”


I thought maybe someone else out there might be feeling the same way. Feel free to share with anyone you think might need a reminder tonight. #holdfast
