Holding On When We Want To Let Go 


The past couple of years have taken a toll on all of us. Things we took for granted — like family gatherings, school, work and travel — have all looked quite different for a while. Many people have also experienced loneliness, anxiety and depression at levels they've never known before. In these situations, we can ask God to take away the pain and struggle, but He may choose to strengthen our faith by gently reminding us of the gift of His presence as we walk through dark seasons. God has a perfect track record. He has always been faithful. In the midst of pain and sadness, tears and questions, we can cling to this profound truth from God’s Word: "Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."(Philippians 1:6) We don’t have to pretend to be perfect or to have it all together. We can hold onto Jesus, knowing that He is holding us.
