Here I am holding this little teddy, gripping onto it for dear life because it’s all I’ve ever known, while my Father stands behind me with a big teddy, a grander plan, one that He’s written into eternity. A plan specific for me… if only I’d let go of my grip, I’d soon see that the future He has set me apart for is glorious.
I wonder how many are just like me. Anxiously carrying this burden… which feels like the weight of the world on your shoulders. So afraid to drop it, because what if it shatters? And just like a ticking time bomb, you’re afraid of the catastrophic events that could occur if it were to go off…
Take heart. Look up, child. Trust.
Your Father journeys right beside you. He’s waiting, ready for you to let it go, so that He can then catch it, and hold it dear.
You’re desires do matter to Him, you know…
“Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass.”
