I wanted to share this dream that my friend Bethany had a couple of years ago. It seems like a lot of people I know and love are going through some really hard times right now. And this story keeps coming to mind. It has meant so much to me time and time again, and I hold on to the image every time life gets hard.
Imagine that God has you in the palm of his hands.
You are just the size of an infant compared to the capable hands that are holding you.
And as you lay in his hands, you're curled up trying to protect yourself from the rain that is beating down on you.
It's cold, dreary, and intense. It almost feels like it's more than you can bear.
But, as you glance beneath the hands that are holding you, you see rapid waters and scorching fire.
If for a moment, God was to let you go, you would surely die.
Suddenly, the rain doesn't seem so bad.
And so you snuggle into the safety of Gods hands knowing that what you're going through is manageable because you are safe with Him.
And knowing that He is keeping you from things far worse allows your hope and faith to grow.
