Just hold on

It is Saturday morning, I am just done with my prayer, reading my bible and singing and praising the Lord. And as I am doing a few things in the house, I suddenly find myself thinking about my next month’s income. Not worried, because I do trust in the Lord, however, I had some thoughts that came up. Like, how will next month be like regarding an income? Knowing I also need to get done with my eBook and have that published so income can start to come from there too. And before I am done thinking those thoughts, I hear the Words,

“Just remember when you’re standing in the valley of decision, and the advisory says give in, JUST HOLD ON, our Lord will show up and He will take you through the fire again.”

It is coming towards me from a CD playing in the back of the room. It is the song “THROUGH THE FIRE” with Randy Travis from his album “GLORY TRAIN.” However, what touched me and spoke to my heart was the words,


If looking at it from a human and worldly way, and not through The Holy Spirit and the Word of God. I have absolute no guarantee for income in September to put food on my table, pay my rent and pay my bills. However, I know the Lord will make a way; I have His Words for that! And He is in control! Nothing is impossible to God!

“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.” Psalm 23:1

Just like the miracles He has done in my life so far, and with August being my first month of not being supported by the government. I have taken a huge step in faith, now being under the Lord as my boss. Praise the Lord. I am not an unemployed any longer, but I am now the manager of my own company and a business partner with God. He that owns all the silver and gold in the world, and whom has all the connections in His hand that I would ever need for my business to prosper, and whom is the best marketing help there is for me. That is the Lord my God whom I am trusting, and whom will keep His promise. No doubt about that!

“Until the time that his word came to pass, The Word of the Lord tested him.” Psalm 105:19

I could have applied for the governments support for August. Because I have the right to have their support as long as I have not had a job offered me and still was unemployed. However, I just knew I could not be on their support any longer. And I knew God wanted me to trust Him with this. But, I am thankful for the time they have supported me, so that I am now able to start working with what I am called to do and what I love to do.

I have this huge desire, goal and need inside me to be able to earn an income so that I can help many others, by using my own working hands and the God-given talent to write and consult, the gift, talent and skills that God has given me and called me to use.

And knowing I am well able to start doing this now after I have had the months that I needed to develop my business. I am now well prepared and ready for to take small or large jobs that will give me an extra income each month.

And while I am trusting God, and taking those different extra jobs, I know God will open doors for my writing and upcoming books, and He will open doors to those that He wants me to help as a one-on-one consultant.

God has called me to write books and to be a consultant. And He has said, “A small start is better than no start.” And I have started.

“You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” Zig Ziglar

I am now out here locally serving people by doing different jobs where I am helping those I can help to get what they want in their life by doing a job that they like to have done. And as I am helping them, I know God will make sure that more work comes my way. That is how He works.

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go. I will guide you with My eye.” Psalm 32:8

Often we like to plan things to secure ourselves, but God might work it out differently. If He say, a large job is on its way towards me. It could possible come from the same client, not as one job, but as many smaller jobs that when put together, is like a puzzle, showing the large job I just did.

I have learned in my journey with God that I need to be patient. And I believe that God used Randy Travis song THROUGH THE FIRE and the words JUST HOLD ON to make me understand that I should not worry, I should not give up, but I should trust in the Lord, because God has a plan, and it will come to pass.

Trust in the Lord, because God has a plan, and it will come to pass.

Which reminds me when thoughts of not knowing when and where, and when it would be very easy to give up, He is saying JUST HOLD ON and remind me to trust in Him.

Maybe you are at place in your life or your business where you would like to see more things happen. And because you have not seen a lot happen like you would like to see, you are now thinking about to quit. But just when you are about to give up, the Lord would say to you,

  1. Another great article Reidun! I have very recently been so close to quitting my side business that I’ve been working on. I’ve definitely slowed down and almost stopped but I haven’t yet. Now I have a second wind to keep going and your words of encouragement are confirmation that I should keep going because something great is about to happen. Thank you Reidun!

  2. Thank you for your words! I am looking forward to see your books “come alive”! God bless you, my friend!
