I, your God, have a firm grip on you and I’m not letting go. I’m telling you, ‘Don’t panic. I’m right here to help you.’ (Isaiah 41:13, The Message)
I don’t have a lot of words this morning. Some days are like that.
That doesn’t meant I don’t have something to share.
This morning, as I sat down to the keyboard, I didn’t find nifty words—I found presence.
My favorite image of God is that of a child curled up in his hand. Like this:
For me the most comforting and complete image of God is being held. I was told by a therapist that I’m touch deprived. The ache in my heart finds peace when I feel held.
Held together…when everything around me feels like it’s falling apart.
Held back…from foolish and destructive choices.
Held close…when the the ache of loss feels devastating.
Maybe you need to be feel held today.
