Stay Strong & Take Heart

Jimi Merrell   -  

At times, we have all experienced a pain so great or a trial so immense that it was difficult to see healing or solution.

During this Shelter in Place, we may be pleading with God to bring rectification to our health, finances, or to lead us to that last package of bathroom tissue. During these times, it is not uncommon to become depressed and to lose heart, but lessons taught from the mouth of David can bring great encouragement:

The LORD is my light and my salvation — whom shall I fear?

The LORD is the stronghold of my life — of whom shall I be afraid?

I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.

Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.

Psalm 27:1,13-14

Be strong, take heart, and wait for the Lord! One man who ingested these words was Reverend Kenneth Paden of the Georgia Mass Choir. Reverend Paden took this sacred admonition and penned the gospel mainstay “Hold On, Help is on It’s Way.” In this song of heavenly encouragement, we are challenged to keep confident in the belief that God has not left us in our despondency; “When you’re down and in despair Don’t be uneasy because he’ll be there Say don’t you worry, no don’t you fret The Lord has never, never failed you yet So hold on, help is on the way Hold on, God is on his way!”

God has got you, and He has got this! Listen & Watch “Hold On, Help is on It’s Way.”
