Some Days

"The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged." - Deuteronomy 31:8

Some days, all we can do is just hold on.
Hold on to truth.
Hold on to what we know is real.
Hold on to the hope we know is tomorrow.

Because some days are just hard.
There is pain because of loss.
There is doubt because of fear and failure.
There is worthlessness because the enemy says so.

But every day there is Jesus.
Even when you can't pray.
Even when you can't worship.
Even when you can't move your heart to line up with His.

Because the enemy lies.
He is a liar and a thief and a fraud.
He hates us because we know the truth.
He hates us because he will never win.

So on days like today, hold on.
Hold on to the truth that is Jesus.
Hold on to the giver that is Jesus.
Hold on to the reality of WHO Jesus is.

And when you can't pray,
when you can't worship,
when you can't move your heart,
just whisper His name -




He hears you. 

With a Courageous Heart,
