Word Filled Wednesday – I Don’t Let Go

It’s a fact of life...

Relationships fail...

Families fall apart...

People let you down...

It’s the truth...

He never fails...

He restores...

He never lets go...

never let go copy

Jesus said,

"I am the Bread of Life.

The person who aligns with me hungers no more and thirsts no more, ever.

I have told you this explicitly because even though you have seen me in action, you don't really believe me.

Every person the Father gives me eventually comes running to me.

And once that person is with me,

I hold on and don't let go.

John 6:35 The Message

Oh Karen, I basically just got through writing the same thing on another blog--how He is the one that does not let go of us, even when we cannot hold on. This is AWESOME. I especially like the way it says, "Every person the Father gives me eventually comes running to me." You have no clue how much this has blessed me today. Thank you my friend.

Joan said...

So true. I love the song by Matt Redmon, "You Never Let Go."

Amydeanne said...

Peggy said...

Definitely a beautiful WORD of Truth from God for every day not just Weds.

Thank you Karen for sharing this verse from the Message! The photo clearly depicts this so well and the trust and how we need to HOLD ON but rest assured that HE NEVER LETS GO!

Your beginning words are so true also, reminding us that God is our only true source of our fulfillment
and answer to our longings. He is the only One that should have power over our souls! For this, we must HOLD ON to the ONE WHO NEVER LETS GO!... and not seek this from others or in other things.

Bless you Karen... so well captured!
