is this surrender

I am joining with Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s prompt is:


to secure
to fasten in a safe place
to be kept tightly

My heart beats,
feeling just a bit more alive
in this moment
Because I know He holds me
Every hour, every moment
My lifeline
My G-d holding me
Keeping, Hedging, Holding

I hold on – face like flint
He holds me

Yes, that’s what I say
that’s what I shout

I hold on – won’t turn away
He holds me

When all around
Other voices say
to hold on to every other thing
rather than let go
and let Him hold me
I say, I shout

I hold on – trust
He holds me

No matter what

I hold on – I am Yours, You are mine
He holds me

An intimate word that feels
Your arms wrapped around me

I hold on – crying out, believing
He holds me

A G-d who
Chooses to come and be
to come and dwell

I hold on – is this sweet surrender
He holds me

  1. Hey friend. I hear your heart in these words. Your love for Him. Your commitment to Him despite the painful seasons. He’s forging beauty in your depths. Yep.

    Thanks for sharing this with me.
