Friday Challenge

Good day! Thank you for visiting the blog today. I am glad you are here and I am always so happy to share the abundance of love that I live in each and every day.

I have been truly loved on by an amazing Creator. He uses so many ways and is so "creative"...thats probably why He had the privelege and honor of creating must be one of His spiritual gifts...ya think? Anyway I was blessed this week by my momma who dedicated a song to me that I thought I would incoroporate as this weeks Friday Challenge.

Read on....

Today we will find ourselves in different circumstances, different seasons of life, different situations. Some will be on the mountain top singing their hearts out with praise and adoration, some will be in the valley trying to keep their heads up. But hear me today friends, He is with you and you just need to Hold on to Him! He doesn't want us just holding His hand when things are tough and hard. He doesn't want us to let go when we think we can "do it on our own now!" We need to hold on at all times! It's not about weakness....its about a relationship. Its not about us earning our dependence and one day not needing to be dependent. In a true genuine relationship you hold on the entire time!

Friday Challenge: Hold Onto Jesus

So here is the song my momma dedicated to me and my Jesus is telling me someone else needs to read these lyrics today!

You're a little piece of heaven
You're a golden ray of light
And I wish I could protect you
From the worries of this life
But if there's one thing I could tell you
It's no matter what you do
Hold to Jesus
He's holding on to you
The world will try to tell you
That might is more than right
That beauty's on the outside
And being good's a losing fight
But remember what I've told you
Because the world will make you choose
Hold to Jesus
He's holding on to you
Hold on to Jesus
Cling to His love
Rest deep in His mercy
Whenever things get rough
Don't lose sight of His goodness
And don't ever doubt this truth
That when you hold on to Jesus
He's holding on to you
Hear me dear Jesus
Rock this little one to sleep
Keep her close when she's scared
And give her grace when she is weak
I know she'll stumble
But I know she'll make it through
If you hold to her just like
You said You'd do
Hold her Jesus
And she'll hold on tight to You

Song Hold Onto Jesus by Erin O'Donnell

I was just mulling over my fear that I have not done enough to help my girls to live independently and to live for Him. Yet, I know the truth--they are His...and while I will continue to try, He is going to need to fill in the gaps. This song reminds me of the truth that His presence is there and that they need only hang on. Goes for me, too!

Amen to this, Nichole! Today I am singing my heart out. Last week - I was feeling disconnected and kind of low. Praise God He is with us always!!

I love you!

What a beautiful song!

Thanks again for pointing out things I tend to forget. I can always count on you to remind me of what's important.

Our society is so bent on the idea of independence...and I slip into it so easily. I am learning that I can be joyfully dependent on Him...not sorry that I have to depend on Him, as if I have let Him down. I HAVE to be dependent on Him, and what a joy that He is holding onto me! Thanks for this reminder today.

Holding on,
K :)
