By the way, who’s holding your hand?
The little girl refuses to let her hand be held. Still, her mother holds her hand firmly until they arrive safely at the store.
How often we resist and struggle to be free, to be on our own! In the most difficult times, we seem to fight the hardest to be independent.
It’s then that God often reaches out and holds even tighter. He knows when we need His hand the most and He refuses to let go. “For I, the Lord God, hold your right hand.” That’s what He says in the Bible, and our response? Thanks, Lord, we appreciate it!
