He Is Holding Us

A few days ago I woke up with a single thought running through my mind....Jesus loves you.  In fact, I wasn't even fully awake when the thought started.  It was that in between state of sleep and being fully aware of what was going on.  Those three words....Jesus loves you....kept replaying over and over in my thoughts.  It was the Lord reassuring me that really....whether I was believing it at that moment or not....everything was okay.  Regardless of my attitude or my faith level....He always loves me.  Not only did He love me but He wasn't going to let me go.  He has me and He has you....holding us in His strong....but gentle hands. 

Isaiah 41-10

Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Isaiah 49-16a

See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands;

Deuteronomy 31:6

Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them;  for the Lord your God, He is the one who goes with you.  He will not leave you nor forsake you.

Joshua 1:5b I was with Moses, so I will be with you.  I will not leave you nor forsake you.

I like these scriptures because they tell me that the Lord has us in His care.  He's with us and He's not going to let us go....ever!  We don't need to be afraid of anything. When we feel powerless....when our determination to simply keep putting one foot in front of the other just isn't there anymore....when we feel alone....when we are simply just tired of it all....

HE. Is. Still. Here!!

HE is still holding us up.  And while He is holding us....He has us totally and completely under His wings of love, mercy and protection.  Giving us all....and everything....that we need.  Exactly when we need it.  All we have to do is reach out and accept it all from Him. 

So today know that Jesus is with you always.  Hold on to Him.  Relax....and just simply the arms and the love of JESUS.

1 Peter 5:7 NRSV

Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He care for you.

Psalm 55:22 AMP

Cast your burden on the Lord (releasing the weight of it) and He will sustain you; He will never allow the (consistently) righteous to be moved (made to slip, fall, or fail).



  1. Yes Chelle Jesus love you! There was a period in my life when accusations were being thrown at me that I was not a real Christian. I was so distraught and I questioned myself and examined myself, laying my heart bare to the Lord. Father came in an reassured me with Romans 8:38-39 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. These verses are so comforting and when Satan attacks with false accusations, Father reminds me of this.

    Nothing Chelle, can take you away from Father or His love.


  2. Hi Chelle! What a beautiful thought to wake up to! God really wanted to comfort and remind you today, didn't he? He truly does love all of us with an individual and great love. And thank you for sharing that insight with all of us! So inspiring.

    Happy Sunday!
