Hold Fast...

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
Mercy Me

I'm sitting at my desk at work, trying not to cry my eyes out....
Last nite I received a desperate cry for help for someone I love very much, from someone I love very much...both of whom I have seen the hand of God work so deeply and miraculously in over the years...yet still again they stand in desperate need of Him, where I have stood and stand so often myself...can we all say, "Amen"?
Today I received not one, but two, two announcements of miracles...miracles I personally have prayed for and believed for and held on to God for....true get up out of wheel chair level miracles!!
Its absolutely incredible....my spirit is shouting and dancing and crying and praying all at once...in joy and pain...all at once....thankfulness and desperation....all at once...
What a life of paradox we live in Christ...He truly is The All and in all....

Pray with me for my loved ones in pain...rejoice with me for my dear ones' miracles...
God is good...all the time...He does hear our petitions and He is a very present help in time of trouble.

Thank you, Lord that you are in control, you have ordered the footsteps of the righteous and you know their path....Your desire is to bring all things to completion in your Son...may your work be established in the hearts and lives of those in desperate need of You and may you complete that which has been committed unto you against that day....hold fast, Lord.

No where but in Him can we feel the dicotomy of pain and praise. It is part of the deal - the part we are not so fond of yet, if we are truly His, we accept. We hurt with those that hurt and rejoice with those that rejoice. Our hearts are strong - they will not tear or be destroyed. I stand firmly with you today, my friend...

I'm with you sister, talking to the Father for your loved ones. Rejoicing with the angels for your miracles. Knowing in my spirit that it's all good. And standing with our Lord for those still in need of Him.

Love you!

As I get to know you through your posts and through your thoughtful comments on my Front Porch, I have come to view you as a marvelous woman who has great trust in the Lord. I never hear you waver even through the storms and praising Him in all circumstances is always woven into the words you write here. We are many that wish we could hold your hand, and drop to our knees and pray with you.
