Safe in the Arms

This is a repost of one of my favorite entries from my other blog. It was originally posted 11/22/05


I was watching my 7 month old explore her world. She was scooting and rolling all over the floor, playing with her toys and sometimes reaching for forbidden things which allowed her to begin learning the word "No". Finally she reached a point where she couldn't touch the desk drawer handle anymore and lightly hit her head on the desk. Her face went down the ground on top of her hands and a muffled cry could be heard. As soon as Mama scooped her up, though, the cries ceased. She was safe in comforting arms! What a reminder of how when we are weary in the midst of trials and persecution, all we have to do is turn and there are the comforting arms of our Father. Oh, what peace that thought can bring!

"As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you;" Isaiah 66:13a
