To What or Whom Do You Cling?

The other day, I had a conversation with a lady about the economic times in which we live. Hard times for many.  For her.  She runs a small business.  Her closing comment to me was, "There's a full moon tonight, so I think I'll do some praying."

I got to thinking about what she might have meant by that.  I wondered to what, or TO WHOM does she cling when times are hard?

And then I wondered the same thing about myself.

I know what the answer should be.  My hope is found in Christ alone (as the song goes).

But how often do I carry the weight of the world on my shoulders as if it's all up to me?  I'm not sure where I ever got the misconceived notion that I could handle it all on my own. But... some days, when I forget... when I lose sight of what I know in my heart to be real and true... I do act as if I'm on my own, and fending for myself.

When things come back into perspective, I think about the things that I've given over to God -- and how he has never failed me.  Ever.

That doesn't mean that things always go my way, or every minute of every day is happy.  It just means that I know who holds my future (God), and I know he holds my hand.  He will bring me THROUGH everything that he brings me TO.

Yes, I believe that to be true.
And, yes - I have lived through circumstances that have tested that very belief.
I have never found my trust to be misplaced.

To what or whom do YOU cling?
