Dear Friend,

This poem has repeatedly come to mind over the last few days as I’ve been sick with a virus. Originally written for a dear friend of mine as she recovered in the hospital, the Lord is comforting me now with its reminder. Thought I would share with you …

“Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Isaiah 40:10

HOLDING

Holding you is what I’ve done

Throughout eternity

I formed you in My mind and heart

Before I formed your body…

I hold you as a mother

Who gently wipes your tears away

I hold you as a father

Who protects you every day…

I hold you as a husband

In My comforting embrace

You rest your head upon Me

Your trust in Me you place…

I hold you with My tender look

I hold you with My smile

I’ll hold you when the world goes wrong

I’ll hold you all the while…

Can’t you see, My precious child?

You mean so much to Me!

To you I gave My beloved Son

Who died and lives to set you free…

I Am your Everlasting Father

I Am your Prince of Peace

I Am your Wonderful Counselor

Who I Am will never cease!

Don’t question My love for you

You’re the apple of My eye

My chosen, holy, beloved one

My daughter and My bride…

I will keep on holding you

Throughout eternity

Always in My nail-scarred hand

You’ll be held by Me.
