What a delight it is for me to share with you a story my sister sent to me recently. I was so excited that she gave me permission to share it with you here. (I love how God used our everyday lives to speak into our souls, don't you?)
I had to take Mattie, my 12 year old daughter, for a home school test today. When we got there, she helped get Phoebe (3 ½ years old) out of the car. There was a really sweet exchange between them: Phoebe had sun in her eyes. She walked a few steps toward the street. Eyes closed. With her hand in the air. Trusting that her big sister would grab that little hand and guide her across the street. And sure enough, her big sister came through and got her safely across the parking lot.
God spoke to me in that moment, I really feel like He did. That's how we should trust Him. We can blindly walk into what may seem to be danger, with our hands to heaven, knowing He will take our hand and guide us through it. ~ Brianne Rask
This made me think of the promise Jesus left His followers (including us) when He said that the Holy Spirit would be our guide (See John 16:13). We don't have to go it alone - in fact, we can't even if we want to! Our God is always with us. But our experience with Him will be determined by our trust in Him.
I pray that we will choose, like sweet little Phoebe, to raise our hand -even if our eyes are closed to what's ahead- and trust that our Heavenly Father walks beside us and that His Spirit within us will guide us.
