Sustenance from the archives+: Together

Sustenance from the archives+ (34).png

I read the prompt and the first thing that came to mind was the verse,  “And He Himself existed before all things, and in Him all things consist (cohere, are held together)” (Colossians 1:17, AMP) 

He holds all things together.
He holds all things together.
In Him all things consist.
He is the Word through Whom all things were made
and He holds all things together.

He holds all things together.
The planets that are known and unknown to us.
The oceans teeming with life.
He holds all things together.

The earth on which I stand with all its many components.
The molecules and the cells.
The flowers and the plants and the trees.
All creeping things. 
Times and seasons.
He holds all things together.

He holds all things together.
Including me.
When I am falling apart or think I will.
When my world or my heart is shattered.
When the things that I valued and held close, tried to guard, are breaking apart in spite of my efforts.
He holds it all together.

Held.
In His hands.
All my moments.
All my days.

Held.
By Him.
Cohered.
Brought back together.
Made new.
Made whole.

“He Himself existed before all things, and in Him all things consist (cohere, are held together).”
