Hand in Hand

I spend time each morning in spiritual readings and prayer.  One of the devotionals that I read each day is “Jesus Calling: a 365-day Journaling Devotional” by Sarah Young.  Each day has a devotional in a style of writing that appears as if the words being read by the reader are the words of Jesus.  Following each commentary the remaining page is left blank so the reader could journal their own personal thoughts in writing.  It’s almost like writing your own prayer back to God, if you choose, or make some other commentary to what you’ve just read.  Today, I would like to share the author’s commentary and then what I wrote following Sarah Young’s words:

Hold My hand–and trust.  So long as you are conscious of My Presence with you, all is well.  It is virtually impossible to stumble while walking in the Light with Me.  I designed you to enjoy Me above all else.  You find the deepest fulfillment of your heart in Me alone.

“Fearful, anxious thoughts melt away in the Light of My Presence.  When you turn away from Me, you are vulnerable to the darkness that is always at work in the world.  Don’t be surprised by how easily you sin when you forget to cling to My hand.  In the world, dependency is seen as immaturity.  But in My kingdom, dependence on Me is a prime measure of maturity.  (Isaiah 41:10; Psalm 62: 5-6)

Praise be the Lord – may I always be a beloved dear child of the Lord God.  For I yearn to hold His hand in my daily walk.  God knows where the beauty of life lies.  Why would I not want to walk as a child by His side – impeneratable of hurt, failure and sadness – when I walk with God.  He takes me to life’s Disneyland – adventures, sparkle, joy, laughter, friendship.  A world of smiles and love vs. fear, anxiety and sadness.  I choose to walk with the Lord – hand in hand – for the rest of my life.  AMEN.
