The Lord Has My Hand

sept 2“But You, God, see the trouble of the afflicted; You consider their grief and take it in hand.” Psalm 10:14a (NIV)

God never sleeps nor slumbers; He sees what goes on in our lives 24/7. Even in times when we struggle and think He may not be noticing, He is there as our constant companion. In 2008, I was overwhelmed and struggled to “keep my head above the water.” On Easter Sunday, I lost my beloved Dad.  The month of June came, and funding for the program in which I worked was pulled leaving me unemployed. A month later, my spouse of 25 years suddenly moved out. Devastated and overcome by grief, I felt like my world was coming to an end. I cried out to God in such audible noises that my voice echoed inside my apartment.

One afternoon four years ago, God gave me a wonderful vision.  I saw myself as a tot holding my Dad’s hand and trying to keep up with his step. Gradually, I saw myself as the woman that I am, and I was now holding on to Jesus’ hand, walking side by side with Him. As I think back on that day, I am reminded that God cared enough to show me that He has my hand and walks with me through my trials. God does not leave us nor forsakes us; He is faithful.  If your world is crumbling and you feel your strength fading, look to Him, cry out to Him, and give Him all your troubles. He will see you through.

“Abba Father, there are so many times when my own strength fails me and tells me that I cannot keep on going; but I can, with Your help. Please help me to keep my focus on You, Lord, so that the disappointments of this world will not become the focus of my life and that I may always give glory to the One who deserves it: You!”

For His Glory
