“She is held by Emmanuel,
and while she may stumble along the way,
while she might trip in the line of His palm,
she will never fall out of His hand.”
am not sure where I first read the above quote, but it really struck my heart, and hope that it will hit the right woman who may be the “she” in this quote that needs to know without a doubt, whatever the course of your life right now, you are held by “Emmanuel” which means, God is with us.
“Are you weary, friend? Do you feel you don’t measure up? Do you know HER? Does she seem to point her finger at you, as well? Nothing keeps us weary like the illusion that everyone else has it all together. I’m pretty sure they don’t. But in the moment, when SHE shows up, I know I am easily convinced. What if, in that moment, instead of listening to HER, we cried out to Him? He who is waiting to strengthen us, and not judge. He is Hope. And surely, He will come running.”
