Holding hands

24 Oct

No matter who’s hand you are holding it generally feels good. It offers safety, comfort, love and familiarity. I am a snuggler, human touch is essential for me. I love that my girls still long to be held, snuggled and hold hands. I am all too aware that these days will end, although its very hard for me to fathom. More often than not I get to hear the words, ” momma hold me, or carry me.”

As I did my devotions this weekend I wrote these words in my journal.
“Be prepared to let go of anything I take from you, but never let go of my hand.”- Jesus calling.

I think this journey has allowed me to experience this concept, and to really hold tight to his hand. Being powerless and out of control of everything and knowing my life is in His hands. When we truly grasp this and believe that He never moves and that His love for us is deeper than anything we experience here on earth we should be overwhelmed and comforted. His hand is always extended waiting for us to grasp it. He never moves. Once we ask Him to be our center, to be our everything He stays there. We are the ones that move. What is even more amazing is He waits on us to return He will hold our hand. He longs to be familiar with you, he wants to be known. All around you things may be taken away or seem out of control, but He is still there. Don’t let go.

Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting! (Psalm 139:23, 24 ESV)

    there’s an older song by a group called The Kry – it’s called ‘take my hand’ or something like that. It’s a song that got me through many difficult days! Love you
