Something To Hold On To



Imperfect Prose with Emily take a look you will be blessed.


You would not walk the edge of the highest bridge without holding on to the rails.
Nor would you ride the ocean's wind without holding on to the sails.
You would not climb the tallest tree without a good firm grip.
Nor would you receive an offering without unwrapping and holding the gift.
You would not set up a ladder and climb it on shifting sand.
Nor would you accept a trophy without holding it in your hands.
So why would you walk the trials of life empty handed your whole life through?
For, Jesus holds out His hand, and He is something to hold on to.

    This is really good, there are times when I felt completely alone but I knew even though I did not feel like it that Jesus never lets go and was holding onto me so I continue to hold onto Him.

  11. Beautiful words, and important reality. But how?? I have a dear friend who has given me this advice, and it's exactly the advice I need. But so hard to put into practice.
