“If you’ll hold on to me for dear life,” says God,
“I’ll get you out of any trouble.
I’ll give you the best of care
if you’ll only get to know and trust me.
Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times;
I’ll rescue you, then throw you a party.
I’ll give you a long life,
give you a long drink of salvation!”
-Psalm 91:14-16 (Msg)
Oh, Jesus - I know my part.
Hold onto You with desperate abandon,
get to know and trust you while I'm here on this planet,
and call out to You when I get into trouble.
If I'll do those things,
You'll get me out of every mess,
bring me into Your promise,
and satisfy my thirst for more than this flesh can contain.
I am truly undeserving of a Love this abundant,
yet I open my hands to as much of it as I can hold.
Thank you Lord.
