Hold On To Jesus

In the last few weeks, while preparing for the new school year, I have been really thinking about what I want for my girls and praying each day that I could prepare on how to teach them what I think is important. I have been looking for a verse that would represent my prayers, desires and dreams for Taylor and Aubrey. I chose Deuteronomy 30:20 "...that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him."

My prayer for Taylor and Aubrey is that they both would LOVE God with all their heart, would LISTEN to his voice above all other voices and HOLD FAST to the Lord no matter what they face in life.

This song, Hold On To Jesus by Erin O'Donnell (click on the link below and you can hear the song, the video is not ours, it is all I could find with the song) is perfect in sharing what I want for them. The words of this song are the perfect prayer for any parent. As a mom, there is nothing more I desire to teach my children than to hold on tight to Jesus:

You're a little piece of heaven
You're a golden ray of light
and I wish I could protect you
from the worries of this life
but if there's one thing I could tell you
it's no matter what you do
hold to Jesus, He’s holding onto you

The world will try to tell you
that might is more than right
and beauty's on the outside
and being good is a losing fight
but remember what I've told you
'cause the world will make you choose
hold to Jesus, He’s holding on to you

Hold on to Jesus, and cling to his love
rest deep in his mercy
whenever things get rough
don't lose sight of his goodness
and don't ever doubt this truth
that when you hold on to Jesus
He's holding on to you.

Hear me dear Jesus
rock this little one to sleep
keep her close when she's scared
and give her grace when she is weak
I know she'll stumble, but I know she'll make it through
if you hold on to her just like you said you'd do
hold her Jesus and she'll hold on tight to you
