One day you were crossing a bridge with God. You were scared so you asked GOD, “Can I hold your hand so I won’t fall into the river?”
GOD said, “No my child, I should hold your hand…”
You asked, “What’s the difference?”
GOD replied, “If you hold my hand and something happens, you might let go. If I hold your hand, no matter what happens, I’ll never let go….”
It is not GOD who let go and distance himself from us, it is us.
Sometimes we get so caught up in our lives that we forget HE is there! But GOD loves us. He is steadfast and faithful. As the Bible says, For God said, “I will never leave you; I will never abandon you.” – Hebrews 13:5
The question is not “Are you holding on to God’s hand?” but “Are you letting God hold your hand?”
Is He holding my hand? YES. Will you let Him hold yours?
