Cling: hold on tightly to…
What are you holding on to tightly? Is it your family? Is it your job? Your marriage? Your friendships? It is important to assess what is in our arms. What are we clinging to? What won’t we let go?
As always, the Word of God always directs us in the way we should go:
There is an art to clinging. In order to cling as the Lord directs, we must be willing to let go. We must let go of the things that weigh us down. We must let go of the people that are not healthy for us. We must release the toxic thoughts and toxic habits.
What is good for us? What is going to cause us to grow? Is it reading the news every 5 minutes or is it reading the Word of God? Is it endless scrolling on Facebook or time in prayer? Is it spending intentional time with those whom we love?
We have to cling to the Word of God, for it is good. We must cling to our prayer time, for it is good. We must cling to quality time with those whom we love, for it is good. We have to cling to the things that build us up, for that is good.
Anything we hold tight to will be exalted in our lives, we must remember that as we examined what’s in our arms, mind, and heart. Are you clinging to your job? Are you clinging to what is in your bank account? Are you clinging to the promises of God?
In this time of division, uncertainty, and confusion, let’s commit to holding tight onto our Lord and Savior. In a world of fake news and questionable statements, let’s hold on to the truth which is Jesus Christ. Let’s hold on to unity, joy, and peace. Let’s cling to the promises of God in a world full of lies. Let’s cling to the Lord’s protection in a world full of danger.
Let’s hold tight to love.
Clinging is perfected when we choose to hold tightly to God, our Father.
Peace and Blessings
