It’s five minute Friday again, aren’t you delighted? I saw the word prompt from Miss Kate this morning, it’s HOLD. So have been pondering it for the past two hours. I’ve been considering such ideas as hold fast, will your anchor hold, staying steadfast etc. We’ll have to see where my thoughts take me yet.

We have an anchor that keeps the soul
steadfast and sure while the billows roll;
fastened to the Rock which cannot move,
grounded firm and deep in the Saviour’s love!
That grounding holds us.
The love of God that is.
Just as our parents love keeps
Us secure when we are tots.
How does this transition as we mature?
How does one hold on to
an anchor when persuasions
around us lay?
Wisdom speaks to us
Reminding us to hold on
to the truths we learned as tots.
Clinging securely to love.
To hold fast means
we take action. It’s not a
blind autonamic function.
Purposeful, determined, reasoned.
Will we hold fast to the
one who holds fast to us?
Steady, sure, determined, without fail?
Putting knowledge to sure use.
Intelligence mixed with emotion.
The provides an anchor surely needed.
Faith is action taken
a trust given to
a sure foundation.
God, our hold fast.
