Tuesday's Trust - Feel You Are Falling Apart? We are Held Together by Him...

Tuesday's Trust

Feel You Are Falling Apart?

We are Held Together by Him...

[We pray] that you may be invigorated and strengthened with all power according to the might of His glory, [to exercise] every kind of endurance and patience (perseverance and forbearance) with joy, 

Giving thanks to the Father, Who has qualified and made us fit to share the portion which is the inheritance of the saints (God's holy people) in the Light. 

[The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and the dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 

In Whom we have our redemption through His blood, [which means] the forgiveness of our sins. 

[Now] He is the exact likeness of the unseen God [the visible representation of the invisible]; He is the Firstborn of all creation.

For it was in Him that all things were created, in heaven and on earth, things seen and things unseen, whether thrones, dominions, rulers, or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [by His service, intervention] and in and for Him.

And He Himself existed before all things, and in Him all things consist (cohere, are held together). [Proverbs 8:22-31] {See below for more about this Proverbs passage.}

~Colossians 1:11-17, Amplified Version

So through this child-loss grief, 
this grief that rips us apart..
we can trust that we are ever being held together by Him!


For further reading...

 [Proverbs 8:22-31 (read the amplified version of this below) is a further description of Jesus ("Wisdom") being with God before all creation was even made, and even describes Christ's role in creation! In this passage of Scripture, it describes that God the Father and God the Son were together before anything else was made, and together they created all of earth's beauty and all of Heaven's beauty, and they have held it together for us… 

Proverbs 8:22-31

Amplified Bible (AMP)
22 The Lord formed and brought Me [Wisdom] forth at the beginning of His way, before His acts of old.
23 I [Wisdom] was inaugurated and ordained from everlasting, from the beginning, before ever the earth existed.
24 When there were no deeps, I was brought forth, when there were no fountains laden with water.
25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills, I was brought forth,
26 While as yet He had not made the land or the fields or the first of the dust of the earth.
27 When He prepared the heavens, I [Wisdom] was there; when He drew a circle upon the face of the deep and stretched out the firmament over it,
28 When He made firm the skies above, when He established the fountains of the deep,
29 When He gave to the sea its limit and His decree that the waters should not transgress [across the boundaries set by] His command, when He appointed the foundations of the earth—
30 Then I [Wisdom] was beside Him as a master and director of the work; and I was daily His delight, rejoicing before Him always,
31 Rejoicing in His inhabited earth and delighting in the sons of men.

The same God, the Trinity, the Three-in-One: Father, Son, and Spirit, can surely hold us together as "in Him all things are held together," as He holds together all His creation, even as we trust He holds our children together, in His arms, today and every day, for all eternity…
