white knuckles

I write this as a reminder to myself, and to you.

Keep holding on.

When the storms are raging and you can't see past your face. When the ground is dissolving around you and you can't find your footing.

Keep clinging to truth.

White knuckled.

I, we, are searching for stability in an ever-changing world. Our hearts yearn for rest and satisfaction. Let your weariness draw you to your Savior.

He is the only one who . . .
  • will never leave or forsake you
  • cannot be stripped away
  • will never change
  • pursues us and pours out His love when we are unfaithful
  • is greater than anything we can gain in this life (or think that we need)
  • is completely constant, a firm foundation, a refuge and strength to all who seek His face
  • is working in the details of your life for your own good, to draw you closer to Him 
  • will never leave you disappointed or empty
  • Will carry you through adversity (because we are not always delivered from it)
And this is only the beginning of a list of His attributes. He is closer to you and I than we know. Seek Him.

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith 
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:
   "For your sake we face death all day long;
      we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered." No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
-Romans 8:35-39

 Because your love is better than life,
       my lips will glorify you.
-Psalm 63:3
