This little girl enjoyed her Saturday adventures with her dad. They would go to the park, build a tree house, ride their bikes and just have a fun filled day doing all kinds of things.
One such morning, they decided to go on a hike. They climbed hills, laughed as they stepped from rock to rock and soon they found themselves crossing a river on a tree that had fallen.
As the little girl and her father were crossing the waters, the father was a little
afraid that his daughter might fall into them. So he asked his little girl, "Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don't fall into the river."
The little girl said, "No, Dad. You hold my hand." Her puzzled father asked, "What's the difference?" "There's a big difference," replied the little girl. "If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But, if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, your hand will never let my hand go."
Life can be difficult, even brutal at times. Trials, afflictions and worries can crowd your mind and steal your peace. During these times -- there is one thing that you can be confident in -- the Lord your God is with you!
You can count on it: no matter the circumstances that surround you -- God will not forsake you!! He will not leave you alone in the midst of the battle, He will be right there with you. Be assured that Jesus has a firm grip on you.
And, if Jesus is holding your hand -- He will not let go!
