Hold.Pray.Trust - When the world hurts.


I’ve struggled to write lately as my heart holds a heaviness it has never known before.

I wanted to be honest with you. I wanted to share my thoughts. I wanted to bleed my emotions into my posts. I wanted to write my hurt, my confusion, my sadness, my anger and my empathy into each word that I typed. But until now... I had to compose myself.

I have to tell you that I never, ever thought I would be living in a world that has global coercion at its core. Where keeping your job or business required you to submit to government agendas in order to have a roof over your head and feed your family.

I never imagined a time where I could no longer attend church because I’m not following state rules.

I watched children suffer from being in lockdown, wearing masks, suffering anxiety to extreme levels that bring me to tears.

I’ve witnessed people losing their livelihoods because they chose to stand for freedom and the whispers of God to hold. I’ve been hit personally with my husband and myself. And there are days I’m almost at breaking point.

I’ve seen a side to human nature that I simply cannot even describe as segregation rolls in. Many have lost family and friends who have cut them off due to their choice. Now treated like lepers.

And sadly I and many others are no longer allowed in stores that are not classed as essential.

But then I feel God… I feel him all around me. Then I hear God… as He speaks to me in dreams. Then I see God… as He shows me the Lion roaring and shaking the earth with his sound of justice.

And my heart repeats the soft whisper it has heard for more than a year… Hold. Pray. Trust.

I’m going to hold because that is part of my purpose. I’m going to hold because I will be a voice for those that have been silenced.

I’m going to pray for the Heavenly Father to reveal His plan in all of this. I’m going to pray for our nations, our churches and people to rise up and stand on Jesus’ name.

And I’m going to trust that every child of God sees His glory rain down when His perfect time to move is shown for the world to witness. I’m going to trust in Gods provision, protection and plan.

Get into the word, enter your war room, worship with all you’ve got and take your sorrows to your Heavenly Father and let Him replace it with peace. Pray for your brothers and sisters around the world. Be a mighty voice for Jesus, because people need him now… always. Lift them up to the great I Am and hold tight to His promises!

I want to leave you with this verse to keep strong and remember who you belong to.

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”

Galatians 5:1 NIV

Love Sarah, xx
