Saturday Song: He Will Hold Me Fast

When I fear my faith will fail
Christ will hold me fast
When the tempter would prevail
He will hold me fast
I could never keep my hold
Through life’s fearful path
For my love is often cold
He must hold me fast

Those He saves are His delight
Christ will hold me fast
Precious in His holy sight
He will hold me fast
He’ll not let my soul be lost
His promises shall last
Bought by Him at such a cost
He will hold me fast

For my life He bled and died
Christ will hold me fast
Justice has been satisfied
He will hold me fast
Raised with Him to endless life
He will hold me fast
Till our faith is turned to sight
When he comes at last

Chorus:
He will hold me fast
He will hold me fast
For my Savior loves me so
He will hold me fast

Singing this song while meditating on God’s promises in Scripture encourages me to push through feelings and renew my thinking.

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) Hebrews 10:23
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not treat prophecies with contempt but test them all; hold on to what is good, reject every kind of evil. May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-24
But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one. And we have confidence in the Lord about you, that you are doing and will do the things that we command. May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ. 2 Thessalonians 3:3-5
Through many dangers, toils, and snares,
I have already come;
‘Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
… But God, who called me here below, shall be forever mine. – Isaac Newton

Perspective

Perspective

To see with God’ perspective,

Because he knows the end,

that good triumphs and peace endures;

But my eyes are tired and

my perspective is often

prejudiced by disappointment

and discouragement.

To act with God’s love,

Because His love is perfect

and steadfast

and endures forever;

But my love is tainted by self-pride

and guarded with disillusionment.

To understand with God’s patience,

Because His is righteous;

But mine lasts until

self-righteousness closes in.

To hope with God’s wisdom,

Because He knows His ways are good

and that He is working all things

for my good;

But my hope too often rests

in what is seen.

To persevere with God’s strength,

Because His never fails

and He gives strength

to the powerless,

But my power fails.

To see with God’s perspective,

Because eternity is pressing

and His plan is certain to pass;

And because I am His forever.
