Day 298

EVERLASTING ARMS

The eternal God is your refuge,

and underneath are the everlasting arms.

Deuteronomy 33:27

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, do you fear stepping out in faith? Are you like that baby eagle, trembling before you try out your wings? Are you looking down at the ground or up at the sky? Remember, at the moment you exercise your faith wings, I am there to catch you if you fall. Underneath the thin air you will find a cushion awaiting your landing. My everlasting arms will be your pillow.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
When I'm afraid or hurting, I run to You to find refuge. Halfway there, You meet me, Lord, with arms open wide. Tenderly, You scoop me up, and there, in Your everlasting arms, I rest until the fear and pain are gone. You're such a comfort, Lord.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Faith gives wings to our dreams.
