"Hold My Hand" by Stacey Wooddell Imbimbo

“But I said to you, ‘Don’t be shocked or afraid of them! The LORD your God is going ahead of you. He will fight for you, just as you saw him do in Egypt. And you saw how the LORD your God cared for you all along the way as you traveled through the wilderness, just as a father cares for his child. Now he has brought you to this place.’ 
- Deuteronomy‬ ‭1‬:‭29-31‬ NLT

From the moment that my children were born I would sit my finger inside their sweet palm and they would squeeze.
My oldest spent 50 days in the NICU and this was the only contact I had with him on a regular basis.
They are all toddlers now and still we find those moments to hold hands.
 We might just be crossing the street,  trying to stay together in a store, or  comforting them while they go to sleep.
It is the sweetest picture to see them reach their tiny hand and ask for mine.
They want to connect, feel loved, and know that mom and dad are right there.
It makes them feel safe.
So this week, when you grab your little or not so little one's hand take a moment and thank Jesus for this precious life. Pray for wisdom and guidance as you lead them and guide them.
Just like our heavenly Father will guide and direct us.
Precious Lord take my hand, lead me on let me stand.
