“Lord, Hold My Hand”

JULY 18, 2019 (Alabama, USA)

I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. – Isaiah 41:13 (NIV)

“Hold my hand as we cross this road, son,” I said to my then five-year-old. “No, Mama. You hold my hand,” he responded. As we rushed across the road, I wondered about his request; so later I asked him what he meant when he asked me to hold his hand.

“Well, my hand is small and I might lose your hand, but your hand is stronger than mine. If you hold my hand I know you won’t let go of me.” His trust in me warmed my heart.

We often have the idea that we must hang on to God with all our might lest we get separated from God and lose our way. I’m so glad to know that God promises to take hold of my hand, because God’s hand is much stronger than mine and I know that God will never let go of me.

I say along with Paul that nothing is able to separate us from the love of God. God is holding on to us, and nothing will ever come between God’s hand and ours.


Holy Father, on those days when we are afraid and feel all alone, help us to feel the warmth of Your hand holding ours. Amen.
