Lord, Help Me To Hold Out

Perhaps you have heard the song, “Lord Help Me To Hold Out.” It is a call for perseverance in the midst of the storms of life. It doesn’t ask for the removal of storms, but it only asks that God would help the singer to hold on until “my change” comes.

As the singer moves into the verses, we learn about the struggle. We learn about a way that is not easy, but there is a resolve to put one’s trust in God. Yes hold on. As I think about this song, I am struck by the fact that pains and problems are accepted as normal. We will have difficult days in this life. We will have struggles in this life. We will find ourselves in situations that are almost unbearable.

But the key is that you can hold on. You can hold out. If you just ask the one who has brought you through so many other things, would just help you to hold on a little while longer. For if you hold on, your change will come
