As I was waiting to get out of my car to Volunteer last week I saw a father and daughter pull up to school. They were definitely running a little late. However, I was reminded of something as I watched them.
The dad walked around the car and held the door for his daughter. She hopped out and walked up the sidewalk beside him. As she reached the steps into the building she grabbed for his hand.
Have you reached a place in your life that is a little hard to climb? Are you running late to get your life in order? Have you looked at the mounting steps before you and needed a little encouragement and or assistance? Do you have an insurmountable staircase to climb? Just like this little girl, we have a heavenly Father that is willing to take our hand so that we don’t have to climb alone. (Notice I didn’t say we didn’t have to climb…another day’s post). He will help us to climb to the top, if we will just reach for His hand.
Reach for the hand of Jesus all the time; especially, during the hard times. He will be right there beside you.
