Holly Ridge Happenings

With His Hand on My Shoulder

With His hand on my shoulder I sail a sea of sin.

With His hand on my shoulder I cannot help but win.

I’ll follow as He pilots me through waters dark and cold.

With His Hand on my shoulder I know I’ll reach my goal. 

My every hope is anchored to the faith I have in Him. 

I know I’ll reach the shoreline though at time the lights are dim. 

He’ll take me past the rocky cliffs and from the life’s storm I’ll be released. 

With His hand on my  shoulder I’ll have everlasting peace.

There’s an oak tree in the acorn. Never belittle what God has given you. Never believe the lies of the enemy when he says it’s too small. One day in the future, you’ll look back and see just how far God has taken you, and just how  much you’ve grown. Trust the One who makes oak trees out of acorns. 

God is not going to rewrite the Bible just for your generation. His word remains the same forever and always.

It isn’t a fairytale or a storybook, and it doesn’t always come easy. Love is overcoming obstacles, facing challenges, fighting to be together, holding on and never letting go. It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define and impossible to live without. Love is work, but most of all Love is realizing that every hour, every minute and every second was worth it because you  did it together.

Rest is a weapon given to us by God! The enemy hates it because he want to to be stressed and occupied! Thank God fo the seasons of Rest and Refreshing. God will carry you through the storm. Nothing that has happened to you is a surprise to God. God will still get you to where your are supposed to be.
