Monday Morning Encouragement - Cling Tenaciously
Sweet greetings, Cottage Friends,
Today's encouragement is taken from a devotional I wrote in February 2012.
"My soul clings to You; Your right hand upholds me." Psalm 63:8
All through the winter, one lone leaf has clung to my lilac bush. Through harsh winds and heavy snow it has held fast to the branch, refusing to let go. That tiny leaf reminds me of how we must tenaciously cling to God during the bitter cold and howling wind of life's trials. If we let go, we will surely be tossed about in fear and doubt. But if we hold tight to the One who knows every breath we take, every hair on our head, we will see His faithfulness to bring us peace and joy even in the worst conditions. God is compassionate and full of mercy. He gives grace to all who cling to Him. He holds them up and keeps them close to His heart. May our souls cling tenaciously to Him.
Thank you for joining me for Monday Morning Encouragement, and for the encouragement you give to me with your comments. I so very much appreciate them, as they tell me God is using my blog to encourage others. That's what I hope will happen.
I love you, I'm thinking of you, and I'm praying for you.
Of course, you know I can't leave today without sharing a song that fits so perfectly with today's topic. This beautiful song entitled "Cling" is sung by Shannon Wexelberg. The images of the Northern Lights are incredible. May it give you great comfort.
