Holding My Hand

I am the LORD your God.

I am holding your hand, so don't be afraid.

I am here to help you.

Isaiah 41:13 (CEV)

How many of us Mothers have been holding our Toddler's hand, and felt that tiny little tug meaning they want you to let go? They are independent little things, and want to explore what the world has to offer without any help. What is your first instinct?

To hold them tighter.

Even though they think they can do it on their own, we know better. Whether they know it or not, we know what is best for them. We know that if we let go, they may fall down, or get away from us. So we hold them in our protective grip, showing them the way.

How many of us have tried to let go of God's hand and tried to do things on our own?

He just holds us tighter.

At times he may let us try to do things our way. Just like a Toddler that is usually when we fall down, and just like a loving Mother, he is always there to pick us up, dust us off, take our hands and show us the way.

He is always there, no matter what you are going through. Keeping us is his firm, protective grasp, loving us more than we can even begin to understand.

He will never let you go.

Great post! My mom used to say something along that line to me all the time. She said that He would let us go and was always there with his hand out when we were ready to come back to Him

I hope you have a Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest
