cling… a word that catches…

This morning… in my preparation for the day… I came across a verse… that stuck… a verse that prompted the deeper study… of a single word…

My soul clings to you;
your right hand upholds me.
Psalm 63:8
cling… a sticky word… 
The Hebrew… dabaq… defined… to cling… cleave to… to stay with… to be joined together… to pursue closely…

What does it look like… for a soul… to cling…?

Merriam-Webster… paints this picture… to hold together… to adhere as if glued firmly… to hold or hold on to tightly or tenaciously… to have a strong emotional attachment or dependence…

But… what does it look like…?

Love… compels us to cling… with both hands… and all of self… 
We can only cling… to one thing at a time…
A soul that clings to God… 
lets go of everything else… 
including… control… 
the soul who clings to God… 
goes wherever… He goes…
But… our strength… alone… 
is not enough… to cling… 
powers pull… try to tear us away… 
so He… with His right hand… upholds… us… 
His strength… makes it possible… for a soul to cling… 
When we desire… to be near… to pursue… tenaciously… 
He… makes… it… possible…
My soul clings to You…
Your right hand upholds me…

Is it your desire… to have a soul… that clings… to Him…?
What do you have to let go of… to cling…?
