Kate said HOLD
You’ve got to know when to hold ’em
Know when to fold ’em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run…
[Lyrics by Don Schlitz – Sung by Kenny Rogers]
When I see a word my first thought is usually a tune from somewhere in my past! I’m not a gambler but I am a sinner saved by grace. #formerbadgirl and these four lines could certainly apply to sin! Amen?
I have learned the very best way to avoid doing something you KNOW you shouldn’t? WALK AWAY. This even applies to social media. I get so tempted to say something in this heated political climate – sometimes? I just have to walk away from my computer or lay my phone down.
I should have so many times in my past – regrets? Absolutely! But, it’s good to remember because I NEVER WANT TO GO BACK TO MY OLD LIFE.
- never hold a grudge
- never hold a hot pan without a mitt
- never hold onto worthless stuff
- always hold on to hope
- always hold on to the Promises of God
- always hold, without wavering between right and wrong – CHOOSE right because it’s always right!
I am holding on to this…
…being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ…Philippians 1.6
