Take God’s hand… when it seems an uphill climb and by faith it’s hard to find the strength to see you through. Take God’s hand… when your life is so confused due to things you didn’t choose that happen unto you. (Chorus) When you call out you’ll see He can feel your heartfelt plea even though it seems He’s many miles away. Be strong, take heart, for it will be okay. Take God’s hand… when you need a faithful friend, with a love you can depend, to be there till the end. Take God’s hand… when your life is hard to bear, and you need someone care, to show He’s always there. (Chorus) When you call out you’ll see He can feel your heartfelt plea even though it seems He’s many miles away. Be strong, take heart, for it will be okay.
After we have passed through a difficult time in our own lives; we then try to move ahead, slowly but cautiously. To move too quickly may cause more complications and stress. We look for light and hope: and remain patient. But, without worry or anxiety, some of us can’t look at our futures. What lies beyond today must be a challenge, a struggle or a surrender to the ill-imagined outcome that awaits us. Jesus never gives up on us! Despite our lack of control over Life’s circumstances and the positions they leave us in; we are never left to walk this path alone without any help. That is, unless we choose to. Even then, Jesus is never so far away that our cries for comfort and security are to no avail. It is all a matter of perspective. Are we looking unto Him? The path that lies before us? or the world that is beneath our feet? Think about that! Our fears along this way hold no power over us that the peace of Jesus Christ can’t disperse. Let us but trust completely in His Love that will never leave or forsake us. “Neither death nor life, neither angels or demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height or depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39. (NIV)
“When your burden is heaviest, you can always lighten a little some other burden. At times when you cannot see God, there is still open to you this sacred possibility, to ‘show’ God; for it is the love and kindness of human hearts through which the divine reality comes home to men, whether they name it or not. Let this thought, then, stay with you: there may be times when you cannot find help, but there is no time when you cannot give help.” – George S. Merriam (Co-Author of, ‘The Merriam/Webster Dictionary’).
“When you have become willing to hide nothing, you will not only be willing to enter into communion with God and others, but will also understand peace and joy. As you now have honesty that brings increased intimacy.” – Author unknown.
