“She just needed to be held,” I texted my husband after a two-hour battle to get my 3-year-old to bed.
She’s been sick.
Daddy’s been gone.
And she needed to be seen. Held. Loved.
And in that split second, I felt God say, “Just like you.”
When things are chaotic.
When we feel weary.
When our spirit feels sick.
When it all feels like too much to carry.
We need Him.
To breathe life into us.
To remind us of our worth.
To remind us of the hope He offers.
To remind us that there is good in the world.
To remind us there is more than the temporary things of this world.
To remind us we are not alone.
He wants to hold you too, sis.
When my daughter crawled into my arms, she almost immediately fell asleep. She stopped fighting it and surrendered. I immediately felt the tension in her body just fall.
And I think we can all use that reminder:
You don’t have to do it all on your own.
Crawl to Him.
It’s gonna be okay because the Almighty God and Creator of the Universe is holding you.
