For the Love of Gracie
Author requests article critique
She toddled around the Sunday school room. Gracie’s dad was teaching the class, slightly distracted by her actions. Gracie had been passed to several members of the class, as entertainment or a pacifier we did not know. We all smiled at her curiosity, wondering which pen or gadget would be her next prized possession. Unseen to Gracie, her mother had walked into the room. Coming up behind Gracie, mom lowered her hand. Instinctively, little Gracie’s hand reached up to meet that loving hand, to be led to the nursery and onto her next adventure.
That picture reminded me that every day of our life, the Father meets us. In good times and in bad, He meets us right where we are. He reaches out his hand and holds on. He picks us up when we fall. He answers us when we call. Do you hear him? Can you feel His hand in yours?
When we are hit with life’s tests, trials and troubles what is our instinct? Do we cry within or do we cry out to our heavenly Father? Do we reach for a pacifier or do we reach up and take the hand of our Savior. “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged." Deuteronomy 31:88
Sometime mid scenes of deepest gloom, Sometime where Eden’s bowers bloom,
By waters still o’er troubled sea, still ‘tis His hand that leadeth me!
He leadeth me, He leadeth me, by His own hand He leadeth me;
His faithful foll’wer I would be for by His hand He leadeth me.
He Leadeth me - J. H. Gilmore, 1862
Today, reach out and grasp hold of the hand of the One who loves you.
