I am risking something sharing this. It may sound very trite. It may sound very stupid, but I am going to share it anyway, in the hope that someone else out there can relate.
IN a devotional I read today, the following question was posed:
What has held me back from grabbing Jesus’ hand when I’ve needed help?
the answer that came to me, again, seems so childlike, so rather strange, but here is what I prayed.
What has kept me from grabbing onto god’s hand? I don’t know how! how do I grab Your hand, Lord?
Obviously, I cannot hold onto his hand physically and grab it.
When I pray and say, Lord, help me in this situation, it seems like I can never help but to actually take it back and try to do it myself anyway. I don’t know how to *not* do that.
so, hence, the question. How do you grab god’s hand? how do you grab it without letting go? Any ideas or wisdom anyone can provide would definitely be welcome here.
