Hold On 2 [A Story]

Hold On 2 [A Story]

“Baby!” I cried, “No please! I need you to see and hear please,” I looked around me …‘Jits still stared blankly; Moyin was not only rocking but humming harmoniously… Kach…Kach my heart reached out towards her, yet I turned and enveloped O’tega in my arms…”We’re almost there hun.”

He looked at me, “I did my best sugs,”  Reaching into my soul with his pain filled eyes.

“I know hun but it’s now! Aah!”

“That’s what we thought the last cryless but cryfilled fifteen years…my strength fails me” he said, as he let his hands fall to his side.

“Hun but those who wait on Him, yea those who trust in Him shall renew their strength. All you need do now is reach out and open the door, on the other side is immeasurably more than we asked or thought,” I said softly for the strains had gotten louder and drowned out all other sounds, putting to sleep talebearers tales.

“What if….”

“Sssh!” I placed my hands over O’tega’s mouth, “The only what if, is that the years of cryless and cryfilled 15 years of tales will cease once we open the door to the soothing music. Besides, we’ve lost count of the spiritual children He gave us…Surely that counts for something. I have got you, hun you’ve got me and we can’t let go for one point we have no answers to.” I murmured searching O’tega’s face intently.

I hear Joyce jumping and dancing in offbeat fashion, swinging her arms widely and laughing in an uncontrollable manner…  “The battle has been won,” she crooned, bumping into Roli.

 I turned back to O’tega; “Please take the step…open the door.”  With each step, O’tega took, I saw strength infuse his being. The curved cruel lips of talebearer were turning into a shocked O as his eyes popped.

“Not by sight, not by sight…” O’tega said with each step,

“I am with you,” Joyce said as she danced wildly towards the door.

“Ro baby don’t be left behind,” Moyin had quit rocking and was humming towards Rib Roli, he grabbed her and turned towards the door.

Roli looked into Moyin’s eyes, “I am not so sure but I am willing to dare as long as you think this is it, guess I trust your judgment as always… so we won?” She gushed.

Kachidi called out: “I am sorry Shiere, I just can’t dare to again” and rolled over to her side, backing us.

 I reached out my hand to ‘Jits… “Please take it, let go of talebearers tale, it’s for the best,”

 ‘Jits glanced down to the bags of cry years and missed the Son above.

Indeed no eye had seen, nor had any ear heard the sights and sounds that enveloped us as we opened the door. For though it tarried, it did come like He said it would.


From the Living Word we are told once too often that the Crown is only for those who endure until the end. As children of the One Who Never Dies let us hold on to His promises, through the situations are dire and grim, let’s keep on believing for He will come through. Not necessarily at our timing, but we can be sure that He will come through for us. Yea He may not come through with the baby, the healing of a loved one or the things we so strongly demand He gives to us to prove He is indeed God and takes recognition of our service, but one thing we can be sure of…He will come through. Whatever your circumstance may be do know, the testing of your faith is to bring you forth as pure gold, the triumphant victor that you are.

But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. Isaiah 40: 31

So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to  everyone—especially to those in the family of faith. Galatians 6: 9, 10.

You must warn each other everyday, while it is still “today”, so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God. For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ. Hebrews 3: 13,14.

Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep His promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. Hebrews 10 23,24

Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s Will. Then you will receive all that He has promised. “For in just a little while, the Coming One will come and not delay. Hebrews 10 36, 37
