Hold Fast to Hope

IMG_5919

Hold fast to the light,
so in times of darkness,
upon the mind’s eye,
the golden can shed brightness
and flood the shadows
that form inside us.

Hold fast to hope,
so in times of despair,
the wings of doves and angels
can fill the air
to lift us up
when doubt ensnares.

Hold fast to love,
so in times of loneliness,
the embrace of another
can wrap around us
and hold us
to hold us over
until the next
caress of flesh.

Hold fast to the Lord,
so in times such as these,
our faith remains unshaken,
our fears turn not to disbelief,
for He is both our loving Father
and Almighty King!

He did not forsake Jesus.
He will never forsake you
or me.

One thought on “Hold Fast to Hope

  1. Uplifting, thank you Laura, …..
    “Hold fast to love,
    so in times of loneliness,
    the embrace of another
    can wrap around us
    and hold us
    to hold us over
    until the next
    caress of flesh.”
