Today I had a chance to have lunch with the grand kids. After we finished eating, Morlie my three year old granddaugther turned to me and said, “Hold me Papa.” I was glad to. I put her on my lap then she said, “How me on your chest.” She was wanting me to hold her so she could put her head on my shoulder.
I got thinking of how God wants us to rest on His shoulder and He will hold us as we go through the troubles of life.
When we wander from Him.
Luke 15:4 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?5 And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6 And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.
When we are afraid.
John13:22 Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake. 23 Now there was leaning on Jesus’ bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved.
If we will only have the faith of little children in times of trouble, then we will learn the comfort of Him holding us and our head on His shoulder.
