As families, we learn to hold on to lots of things.
But sometimes life brings on situations and circumstances that force you to hold on to each other like you never have had to before.
You learn to hold on to each other.
To hold on to something bigger.
I love FFH.
Their sound, their lyrics and their story all speak to me in many different ways.
I love harmonizing with them… one of the many bands I have “concerts” with on our long car rides.
Their album called Wide Open Spaces has really hung on to me. Like stuck in my head.
They have a song called Hold On To Me.
As I listened to the song, I thought of our family and the journey of missions, moving, transition and change.
We’ve had to learn to hold on in new ways.
To depend on each other.
Help each other.
Trust each other.
That’s how this journey, this life of faith feels. Stepping out of the boat together, going and obeying.
We aren’t who we were before.
This process is changing us personally and as a family.
Things won’t be the same. We aren’t the same… yet we are.
So, we will hold on and just keep going together.
Changing, growing, living… holding on to the One who called us to this time and place.
We want to embrace the mystery of what is ahead.
We want to let this process mold us and make us.
We want to hold on like never before to each other and to God, our faithful leader and provider.
Clinging to something so much bigger than us.
Knowing that without God, we can’t possibly face the challenges ahead.
We need Him.
We need each other.
Holding on to each other.
How is your family learning to hold each other?
