In His Arms

“The Lord God is My strength, My personal Bravery and My Invincible Army.  He makes my feet like hinds feet, and will make me walk, not stand still in terror, but walk and make Spiritual Progress upon my High Places of Trouble, Suffering and Responsibility.” Habakkuk3:19

Yesterday morning I sat behind a young girl and her dad in the worship center during worship time. The girl had on a sundress, though it was very warm outside, it was rather chilly in the worship center…. As I watched, she first of all got her daddy’s hand and held it… then wrapped his arm around herself… and eventually moved up into his lap.

Watching her in her daddy’s lap reminded me of days long gone, when I too would climb up in my daddy’s lap. I remember feeling the love and warmth of my daddy’s arms… holding me, comforting me, whispering his love to me. Oh the joy of children wrapped in the arms of their ‘Daddy’.

I know my own children can remember the times spent with their daddy.. such a loving daddy…

But today, my mind turns to the One who is Truly my Father…

How on those days when I need those Huge Warm Arms wrapped tightly around me… He invites me to come to Him… climb up onto his lap and just rest. Oh the Joy, Comfort and Strength those arms afford me. The Peace that floods my soul… the hope that encourages me to walk on… to face the journey ahead.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly…

His love and encouragement give me the strength I need each day… to live… to love and to encourage those I find along the way…

Always Knowing in my Heart of Hearts… there is nothing that can separate me from Him, for His Love, from His care…

“The God of Angel Armies is Always by my side.”

He is ALWAYS in control!

In Him Always!

What a glorious reminder of who we are and what we are in Christ! You don't post very often, but when you do, it is always so worth reading. I never read your blog without wishing that we were close enough to have a cup or tea together!!

Blessings
