Dear Church Family,
Several years ago, my mother led me to a verse of scripture which has been a big
encouragement to me. The verse has been helpful to me in times of struggle and difficulties. I
know that I have already shared this verse with some of you. This wonderful verse is Isaiah
For I am the Lord your God
who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
I will help you.
Hearing that God is God and we don’t have to fear are great reminders of the mighty,
unchanging God watching over us. However, the part of this verse that really speaks to my
heart is “who takes hold of your right hand.” The very thought that the God of the universe
would take hold of my hand to help me is more than I can comprehend. By taking my hand, He
brings comfort, guidance, peace, courage, and renewed strength into my life.
If you are in the midst of a struggle, remember who’s holding your hand!
In his grasp,
