Don't Cry Uncle

Posted by Tami Wallace on June 28, 2017 @ 8:22 AM

This month has been one of the most intense, "I didn't see that coming" seasons I have ever walked through.  (That's saying a lot, because God and I have walked through some major things together!)

But this one ... this one had me thinking, "Okay, what's the spiritual way to 'cry uncle'?!"  (To say or cry uncle is an expression demanding that the opponent submit; its a cry for mercy; an indication to give up.)

Colossians 1:17 "And He Himself existed and is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.  He is the controlling, cohesive force of the universe."

IN HIM all things hold together ... IN HIM all things hold together ... IN HIM all things hold together.

Being IN HIM is a state of being.  It's not a ladder I struggle to climb and then suddenly everything is okay.  It's a STATE OF BEING. 

From the beginning of time right up until this moment, He is holding it all together! 

So when I want to cry uncle because I feel like it's too much, I'm overwhelmed and it's all falling apart, I can know just the opposite is true. 

I am IN HIM and it's not going to unravel and I don't have to 'cry uncle' because He is holding it all together!
