Hold me, Jesus...

There's a lot to pray for this evening. Life's a "wee bit" full and like many women, I want to do it well.

Family.
Work.
School.
Friends.
Calling.
Life....

If I tried to do this on my own, it would be impossible. Sometimes the best we can manage is to hold on. I'm really glad that there's something REAL about God to hang on to... The bottom line is simply this...

Most of it has nothing to do with "Deb"
and everything to do with watching God work
in all of the places and spaces that only GOD can!

So.
Hold
Me
Jesus...


HOLD ME JESUS

by Rich Mullins

Well, sometimes my life
Just don't make sense at all
When the mountains look so big
And my faith just seems so small

CHORUS:
So hold me Jesus, 'cause I'm shaking like a leaf
You have been King of my glory
Won't You be my Prince of Peace

And I wake up in the night
And feel the dark
It's so hot inside my soul
I swear there must be blisters on my heart

CHORUS

Surrender don't come natural to me
I'd rather fight You for something
I don't really want
Than to take what You give that I need
And I've beat my head against so many walls
Now I'm falling down, I'm falling on my knees

And this Salvation Army band
Is playing this hymn
And Your grace rings out so deep
It makes my resistance seem so thin

CHORUS

You have been King of my glory
Won't You be my Prince of Peace
