I Will Hold You

(photo source

 My Child,

Remember those times when you were afraid and you longed for your daddy’s strong arms to hold you?  Sometimes he did, and perhaps maybe he didn’t ever hold you the way you desired to be held, but I want you to know that I was there.

When you were afraid,
I held you until My peace overwhelmed you.

When you felt alone,
I held you until you could feel My Holy Spirit within you.

When you were confused,
I held you until clarity took over your mind.

When you were angry,
I held you until the tears fell and you felt My love.

When you felt hopeless,
I held you until hope arose in your heart.

But I didn’t just hold you then.  I hold you now.  Can you feel my strong arms around you?  Do you feel loved and at peace?

On those days were you long for your daddy’s arms, reach up!  I will pick you up and hold you.

And I will never let you go!

Until tomorrow,
Love Jesus

    What a wonderful way to start my morning, with a reminder that I am held in my Father’s arms.

  2. Two things:
    1. That cup of Yum is calling me very loudly!
    2. Growing up without a Dad made the presence of God real to me as a child although I was unsure about so many things. But I did receive the powerful memory and impression of His very real presence. Eventually I got to meet my real life Dad and also accept my Father in Heaven’s love for real. Now I have both of them! Thanks for the beautiful reminder.

      My girlfriend told me today that these yummy photos of mine were sinful! I am so thankful that God’s presence was so real to you as a child. I had a dad, although emotionally distant, and didn’t have God in my life until I was 20. And how wonderful that you got to meet your dad. God is in the restoring business!

    Having a physical father who was absent most my life made me really relate to these beautiful words…
