Hold On

In my previous post, I reviewed the movie, Harriet.  This was one of the spirituals used in the film that spoke strongly to me.  I couldn’t find out anything about the origin of this specific song.  However, we have all experienced the necessity of “holding on” through difficult circumstances.  It would have been particularly meaningful to those who were enslaved.

And why do we hold on?

“… I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.”  Phil. 1:6

What could be more consoling?
