He Holds Your Hand!

Happy Wednesday!
Thanks for the sweet comments about yesterday's post.
Throughout this year, my mom and I are memorizing Scripture with Beth Moore's Blog Community.  I will be sharing what some of these verses have spoken to my heart on this blog.  In February, I memorized a verse that really resonated with my heart.

"For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you."   Isaiah 41:13

I'd probably read that verse a thousand times in my life, but I never really saw what it said before.  How many times have I been afraid and forgotten that God is right there with me, doing life with me?    When you walk down the street and see a mom and child or husband and wife or grandmother and grandchild holding hands, doesn't it just melt your heart?  This verse promises that is what God does for us - HE'S HOLDING MY HAND!  Wow!  How can I ever walk a day the same?  He's not hovering over me, ready for me to mess up like some people envision.  He's not sitting on a cloud hoping I'm okay.  He's right here with me in the trenches of life, holding my hand.  Let's live in that reality that God loves us so much He is holding our hands helping us to get through anything that comes.

Thank you for sharing, Dawn! What a wonderful reminder that God is not only with us in the good times, but also the difficult times.
