Holding On to Hope


I know you feel like you are all alone

sitting on the porch trying to let the breeze

wash over your soul

but instead you choke, suffocating

as you inhale but cannot seem to exhale

I know you are reenacting the Civil War each day

hoping surrender will come your way


it never does, and you’re so tired of the

bombs, gunfire, and grenades exploding around you. . .

And, I know you are holding on tight as you can

knuckles white, shaking, unable to grasp

even at straws

I know—because I am too—so are many others

You, my friend,

are not alone.

I promise you this:

Even in the darkest night where

you can’t see even the tiniest spark of light

there is still a Light in your darkness.

His name is Jesus, and He’s waiting

with open arms to gather you up

to let you know He’s got you, and,

He’s got this all under control.

You are not alone.

You are loved.

Not just by Jesus, but by me too.

So hold on to hope

hold on to Jesus

tighten your grip on that rope

feel Him pull you up from the pit

into the Light of His love, mercy, and grace.



Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world.

He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

John 8:12


From My Heart to Yours,

Marcie 🙂
