Holding on? I grew up in a family that seldom stopped to lick its wounds, even when life got disruptive. We always felt that if there was a rope to grab on to you just had to hang on as long as you could. You might be left dangling for a while, but there always was that hope that with a little love somehow you’d be able to pull yourself back up.
Think about it. Hanging on to the rope is key to staring over again. We may be dangling from the cliff but we need to hang on, waiting for the strength to make the climb back up.
God’s Word tells us: “Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good.” (Romans 12:9).
Faithfulness begins with a willingness to hold on to the rope even when that implies risk, even danger. Sometimes that’s just not easy to do, especially when you feel you’re at rope’s end. Nevertheless, with God at the other end of that rope, letting go seems pretty foolish after all.
“Heavenly Father, sometimes I just get tired of trying and not achieving. Tired of hanging on. Tired of believing for a miracle. Fill me with Your power to persevere. I’ll take the next step and believe for the next day. I will not give up!In Jesus name. Amen!”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
