“Holding On To You

In the thick of classes, homework, and projects there were times where I felt completely overwhelmed and like this stage of life would never be over. While expressing some of these feelings to a cousin of mine, she shared this song and these words with me: “I am praying for you, that you would be able to find rest in Him during this crazy season, and that His presence would bring peace and strength to your heart for every day, every assignment, every paper, every task at work. He is faithful, He is rest, He is the anchor, the victory, our strength.” This message brought a flood of tears, it was just what I needed to hear, and this song brought me the comfort that I was seeking in a time of feeling so overwhelmed. It reminded me to lean into Jesus, hold onto Him, and “take delight in the Lord, and he will give [me] the desires of [my] heart”. Psalm 37:4
